Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1933".
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 15 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 09:15, this is 13 days after last apogee on 17 October 2069 at 05:28 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 13 November 2069 at 07:36 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 356 831 km (221 725 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2069. It is 5 677 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 406 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its descending node on 29 October 2069 at 23:39 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 November 2069 at 11:24 in ♏ Scorpio.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 20 October 2069 at 03:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.268°. Next 2 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.
