Moon ♉ 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 first ∠4° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1856" and ∠1932".
The Full Moon this days is the Hunter of October 2080.
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 999 of Meeus index or 1952 from Brown series.
Length of current 999 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 53 minutes. It is 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 1000 length.
Length of current synodic month is 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠51.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠82.5°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 21 October 2080 at 15:25 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 November 2080 at 09:49 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 386 164 km (239 951 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 160 km (230 007 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 26 October 2080 at 03:27 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 November 2080 at 04:19 in ♎ Libra.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 18 October 2080 at 10:47 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.649°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.580° in the next northern standstill on 1 November 2080 at 15:18 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
