Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 26 October 2100 at 07:19.
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 ∠2° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1901" and ∠1932".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2100 after 19 days on 16 November 2100 at 22:19.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1246 of Meeus index or 2199 from Brown series.
Length of current 1246 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 12 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2100. It is 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 1247 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠340.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠356.4°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 20 October 2100 at 04:03 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 November 2100 at 08:19 in ♏ Scorpio.

5 days after previous North standstill on 23 October 2100 at 08:12 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.129°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.051° in the next southern standstill on 5 November 2100 at 05:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 4 days on 2 November 2100 at 03:14 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
