Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1920".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2086 after 14 days on 22 October 2086 at 09:56.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 17:56 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1073 of Meeus index or 2026 from Brown series.
29 days, 17 hours and 57 minutes is the length of new lunation 1073. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2086. It is 3 minutes longer than next lunation 1074 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠181.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠206.3°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 14:11, this is 14 days after last perigee on 23 September 2086 at 10:35 in ♈ Aries. 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 21 October 2086 at 22:00 in ♈ Aries.
This apogee Moon is 406 627 km (252 666 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2086. It is 1 219 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 82 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
10 days after its descending node on 27 September 2086 at 11:17 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 October 2086 at 22:52 in ♏ Scorpio.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 28 September 2086 at 08:31 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.839°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.722° in the next southern standstill on 13 October 2086 at 01:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
