Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 13 October 2095 at 09:30.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1959" and ∠1925".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2095 after 27 days on 11 November 2095 at 19:05.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1184 of Meeus index or 2137 from Brown series.
Length of current 1184 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 38 minutes. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 1185 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 54 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 9 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠168.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠192.1°. 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 perigee on 13 October 2095 at 09:25 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 October 2095 at 21:48 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 365 981 km (227 410 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 522 km (252 601 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 4 October 2095 at 02:06 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 October 2095 at 18:35 in ♊ Gemini.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 6 October 2095 at 09:24 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.437°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.525° in the next northern standstill on 18 October 2095 at 21:15 in ♋ Cancer.
After 12 days on 28 October 2095 at 06:32 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
