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 first ∠1° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1929".
The Full Moon this days is the Hunter of October 2086.
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 1073 of Meeus index or 2026 from Brown series.
Length of current 1073 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 57 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2086. It is 3 minutes longer than next lunation 1074 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠181.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠206.3°. 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 21 October 2086 at 22:00 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 3 November 2086 at 17:53 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 363 971 km (226 161 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 226 km (252 417 mi).
10 days after its ascending node on 11 October 2086 at 22:52 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 October 2086 at 18:13 in ♉ Taurus.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 13 October 2086 at 01:01 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.722°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.669° in the next northern standstill on 25 October 2086 at 17:01 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
