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 ∠23° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1930".
The Full Moon this days is the Hunter of October 2064.
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 801 of Meeus index or 1754 from Brown series.
Length of current 801 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 802 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 33 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 36 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠359.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠14.9°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 01:15, this is 13 days after last perigee on 10 October 2064 at 11:14 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 7 November 2064 at 22:41 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 406 377 km (252 511 mi) away from Earth. It is 969 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 332 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
5 days after its ascending node on 18 October 2064 at 15:14 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 November 2064 at 05:22 in ♌ Leo.

9 days after previous South standstill on 14 October 2064 at 19:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.067°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.938° in the next northern standstill on 29 October 2064 at 10:35 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
