Gibbous ♉ 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 about ∠25° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1923".
The Full Moon this days is the Hunter of October 2068.
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 850 of Meeus index or 1803 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 29 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2068. It is 4 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 4 hours and 45 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 18 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠183.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠209.1°.
1 day after point of perigee on 10 October 2068 at 11:20 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 23 October 2068 at 04:48 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 364 824 km (226 691 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 142 km (252 365 mi).
10 days after ascending node on 30 September 2068 at 14:29 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 13 October 2068 at 09:31 in ♉ Taurus.
10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 2 October 2068 at 15:38 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.769°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.707° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 October 2068 at 05:07 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
