Moon ♈ Aries
Full Moon is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 100%. The 14 days old Moon is in ♈ Aries.
* The exact date and time of this Full Moon phase is on 13 October 2019 at 21:08 UTC.
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 7.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1923".
The Full Moon this days is the Hunter of October 2019.
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 244 of Meeus index or 1197 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 12 minutes. It is 2 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 37 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠11.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠28.3°.
2 days after point of apogee on 10 October 2019 at 18:29 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 26 October 2019 at 10:41 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 402 848 km (250 318 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 316 km (224 511 mi).
7 days after descending node on 5 October 2019 at 18:49 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 20 October 2019 at 07:28 in ♋ Cancer.
20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 5 October 2019 at 16:01 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.788°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠22.947° at the point of next northern standstill on 20 October 2019 at 08:07 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
