Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1924".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2042 after 14 days on 28 October 2042 at 19:48.
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 02:03 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 529 of Meeus index or 1482 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 25 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2042. It is 24 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 41 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠177.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠201.7°.
Moon is at apogee at 10:02. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 29 September 2042 at 23:50 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next perigee on 28 October 2042 at 11:27 in ♉ Taurus.
This apogee Moon is 406 527 km (252 604 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2042. It is 1 119 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 182 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after descending node on 13 October 2042 at 20:03 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 27 October 2042 at 16:01 in ♈ Aries.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 5 October 2042 at 09:09 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.491°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.484° at the point of next southern standstill on 20 October 2042 at 02:47 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
