Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 11 November 2093 at 06:50.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1783" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2093 after 20 days on 2 December 2093 at 22:24.
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 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 9 November 2093 at 23:18 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 November 2093 at 17:56 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 401 977 km (249 777 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 650 km (227 204 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 8 November 2093 at 15:46 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 November 2093 at 07:46 in ♑ Capricorn.

4 days after previous North standstill on 8 November 2093 at 02:08 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.330°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.406° in the next southern standstill on 21 November 2093 at 22:15 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 6 days on 18 November 2093 at 19:57 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
