Moon ♉ 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 ∠1973" and ∠1932".
The Full Moon this days is the Hunter of October 2042.
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 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.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠177.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠201.7°.
Moon is at perigee at 11:27. It is 14 days after previous apogee on 14 October 2042 at 10:02 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next apogee on 10 November 2042 at 12:15 in ♎ Libra.
This perigee Moon is 356 973 km (221 813 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 535 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 383 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after ascending node on 27 October 2042 at 16:01 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 10 November 2042 at 01:54 in ♎ Libra.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 20 October 2042 at 02:47 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.484°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.455° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 November 2042 at 17:22 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
