Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 7 October 2086 at 17:56.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1797" and ∠1923".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2086 after 10 days on 22 October 2086 at 09:56.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1073 of Meeus index or 2026 from Brown series.
Length of current 1073 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 57 minutes. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 7 October 2086 at 14:11 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 October 2086 at 22:00 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 398 772 km (247 785 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 173 km (221 937 mi).

13 days after previous North standstill on 28 September 2086 at 08:31 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.839°. Next day 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.
After 10 days on 22 October 2086 at 09:56 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
