Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2087 after 15 days on 10 November 2087 at 12:05.
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 11:29 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1086 of Meeus index or 2039 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 54 minutes is the length of new lunation 1086. It is 25 minutes shorter than next lunation 1087 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠158.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠183°. 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°).
13 days after point of perigee on 13 October 2087 at 09:38 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 October 2087 at 19:16 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 403 694 km (250 844 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 334 km (252 484 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 13 October 2087 at 21:45 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 October 2087 at 13:13 in ♏ Scorpio.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous North standstill on 16 October 2087 at 04:13 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.085°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.046° in the next southern standstill on 30 October 2087 at 09:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
