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 7.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1794" and ∠1930".
The Full Moon this days is the Hunter of October 2083.
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 1036 of Meeus index or 1989 from Brown series.
Length of current 1036 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 52 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2083. It is 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 1037 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠325°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠343.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
11 days after point of perigee on 13 October 2083 at 13:59 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 October 2083 at 11:06 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 399 519 km (248 250 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 765 km (252 131 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 18 October 2083 at 19:32 in ♑ Capricorn, 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 2083 at 04:57 in ♌ Leo.

9 days after previous South standstill on 15 October 2083 at 18:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.557°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.436° in the next northern standstill on 29 October 2083 at 17:47 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
