Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 8 October 2092 at 02:16.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1940" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2092 after 5 days on 15 October 2092 at 10:25.
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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1147 of Meeus index or 2100 from Brown series.
Length of current 1147 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 13 minutes. It is 6 minutes longer than next lunation 1148 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠312.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠334°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 4 October 2092 at 11:15 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 October 2092 at 09:17 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 369 518 km (229 608 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 238 km (251 803 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 23:54 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 24 October 2092 at 08:18 in ♌ Leo.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 7 October 2092 at 16:31 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.361°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.498° in the next northern standstill on 21 October 2092 at 20:05 in ♋ Cancer.
After 5 days on 15 October 2092 at 10:25 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
