Moon* ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 6 October 2046 at 20:41.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1924".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2046 after 1 day on 14 October 2046 at 23:41.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 578 of Meeus index or 1531 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 41 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 3 hours and 53 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 17 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠1.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠16.7°.
Moon is at apogee at 11:22. It is 13 days after previous perigee on 30 September 2046 at 00:48 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next perigee on 28 October 2046 at 11:41 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 406 316 km (252 473 mi) away from Earth. It is 908 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 393 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
5 days after ascending node on 8 October 2046 at 06:47 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 22 October 2046 at 20:31 in ♋ Cancer.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 5 October 2046 at 04:08 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.388°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.246° at the point of next northern standstill on 19 October 2046 at 20:53 in ♊ Gemini.
In 1 day on 14 October 2046 at 23:41 in ♈ Aries the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
