Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2086 after 17 days on 20 November 2086 at 20:12.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 17:53, this is 12 days after last perigee on 21 October 2086 at 22:00 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 19 November 2086 at 08:15 in ♉ Taurus.
This apogee Moon is 406 226 km (252 417 mi) away from Earth. It is 818 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 483 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
9 days after its descending node on 24 October 2086 at 18:13 in ♉ Taurus, 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 8 November 2086 at 03:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.

8 days after previous North standstill on 25 October 2086 at 17:01 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.669°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.623° in the next southern standstill on 9 November 2086 at 06:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 2 days on 6 November 2086 at 11:53 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
