Moon* ♉ Taurus
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1932".
The Full Moon this days is the Hunter of October 2069.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 863 of Meeus index or 1816 from Brown series.
Length of current 863 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 34 minutes. It is 26 minutes shorter than next lunation 864 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 50 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 13 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠161.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠185.4°. 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°).
12 days after point of apogee on 17 October 2069 at 05:28 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 October 2069 at 09:15 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 364 086 km (226 233 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 831 km (221 725 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 23:39 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 12 November 2069 at 11:24 in ♏ Scorpio.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 20 October 2069 at 03:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.268°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.271° in the next northern standstill on 2 November 2069 at 01:44 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
