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 ∠12° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1798" and ∠1934".
The Full Moon this days is the Beaver of November 2028.
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 356 of Meeus index or 1309 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 21 minutes. It is 2 hours and 27 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 2 hours and 23 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 46 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠18.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠37.4°.
4 days after point of apogee on 29 October 2028 at 06:55 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 14 November 2028 at 05:53 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 398 718 km (247 752 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 613 km (225 939 mi).
9 days after ascending node on 23 October 2028 at 23:55 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 7 November 2028 at 12:08 in ♋ Cancer.
9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 21 October 2028 at 21:48 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.357°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.251° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 November 2028 at 12:08 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
