Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 20 October 2093 at 07:33.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1954" and ∠1930".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2093 after 9 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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1160 of Meeus index or 2113 from Brown series.
Length of current 1160 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 24 minutes. It is 34 minutes longer than next lunation 1161 length.
Length of current synodic month is 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠284.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠314.2°. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 13 October 2093 at 02:43 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 26 October 2093 at 10:39 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 366 774 km (227 903 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 030 km (229 926 mi).
11 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 26 October 2093 at 05:22 in ♑ Capricorn.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 11 October 2093 at 17:32 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.080°. Next day 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 9 days on 3 November 2093 at 06:46 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
