Moon* ♎ Libra
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1926".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2028 after 15 days on 2 November 2028 at 09:17.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 18:24 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 355 of Meeus index or 1308 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 48 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 4 hours and 11 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 58 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠2.9°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠18.5°.
Moon is at perigee at 00:41. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 1 October 2028 at 21:38 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 29 October 2028 at 06:55 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 359 010 km (223 078 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 498 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 346 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
6 days after descending node on 11 October 2028 at 11:37 in ♋ Cancer. 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 23 October 2028 at 23:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 9 October 2028 at 07:11 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.447°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.357° at the point of next southern standstill on 21 October 2028 at 21:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
