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 ∠16° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1918".
The Full Moon this days is the Hunter of October 2077.
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 961 of Meeus index or 1914 from Brown series.
Length of current 961 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 14 minutes. It is 39 minutes shorter than next lunation 962 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 30 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 33 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠171°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠194.6°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 1 October 2077 at 22:59 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 October 2077 at 08:01 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 363 540 km (225 893 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 478 km (252 574 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 22 September 2077 at 17:43 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 October 2077 at 09:50 in ♉ Taurus.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 25 September 2077 at 19:33 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.269°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.357° in the next northern standstill on 8 October 2077 at 07:01 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
