Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 31 October 2096 at 11:16.
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 ∠25° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2096 after 28 days on 29 November 2096 at 21:34.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1197 of Meeus index or 2150 from Brown series.
Length of current 1197 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 7 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes shorter than next lunation 1198 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 23 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 40 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠143.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠169.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:33, this is 12 days after last apogee on 19 October 2096 at 20:10 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 16 November 2096 at 05:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 358 056 km (222 486 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 452 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 300 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 07:19 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 14 November 2096 at 20:36 in ♏ Scorpio.
At 07:19 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
9 days after previous South standstill on 22 October 2096 at 13:04 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.956°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.978° in the next northern standstill on 4 November 2096 at 10:38 in ♋ Cancer.
After 13 days on 15 November 2096 at 00:36 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
