Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1924".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2093 after 20 days on 3 November 2093 at 06:46.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1159 of Meeus index or 2112 from Brown series.
Length of current 1159 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 17 minutes. It is 53 minutes longer than next lunation 1160 length.
Length of current synodic month is 33 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 30 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠247.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠284.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 02:43, this is 12 days after last perigee on 1 October 2093 at 02:43 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 26 October 2093 at 10:39 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 404 214 km (251 167 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 194 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 495 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 12 October 2093 at 13:29 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 26 October 2093 at 05:22 in ♑ Capricorn.

1 day after previous North standstill on 11 October 2093 at 17:32 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.080°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.213° in the next southern standstill on 25 October 2093 at 15:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 6 days on 20 October 2093 at 07:33 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
