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 ∠11° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1840" and ∠1931".
The Full Moon this days is the Hunter of October 2045.
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 566 of Meeus index or 1519 from Brown series.
Length of current 566 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 12 minutes. It is 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 567 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠34.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠58.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
6 days after point of apogee on 20 October 2045 at 04:05 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 November 2045 at 21:44 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 389 503 km (242 026 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 185 km (228 780 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 19 October 2045 at 23:03 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 November 2045 at 17:28 in ♌ Leo.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 15 October 2045 at 06:40 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.520°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.401° in the next northern standstill on 29 October 2045 at 17:40 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
