Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 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 ∠5° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1900" and ∠1926".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2095 after 24 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 20 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°).
5 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 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 October 2095 at 21:48 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 377 328 km (234 461 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 522 km (252 601 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 16 October 2095 at 18:35 in ♊ Gemini, 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 31 October 2095 at 04:49 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 21:15 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠25.525°. Next 15 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-25.619° in its southern standstill point on 2 November 2095 at 15:39 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 9 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.
