Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1834" and ∠1927".
The Full Moon this days is the Hunter of October 2089.
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 1110 of Meeus index or 2063 from Brown series.
Length of current 1110 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 40 minutes. It is 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter than next lunation 1111 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠38.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠64.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
6 days after point of apogee on 13 October 2089 at 11:47 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 October 2089 at 23:05 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 390 842 km (242 858 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 917 km (229 234 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 18 October 2089 at 03:46 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 31 October 2089 at 06:06 in ♎ Libra.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 9 October 2089 at 17:53 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.220°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.262° in the next northern standstill on 24 October 2089 at 02:33 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
