Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1934".
The Full Moon this days is the Hunter of October 2096.
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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1197 of Meeus index or 2150 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 7 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 23 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 40 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠143.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠169.7°.
11 days after point of apogee on 19 October 2096 at 20:10 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 November 2096 at 07:33 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 364 888 km (226 731 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 056 km (222 486 mi).
12 days after descending node on 18 October 2096 at 14:16 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 1 November 2096 at 07:19 in ♉ Taurus.
26 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 22 October 2096 at 13:04 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.956°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.978° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 November 2096 at 10:38 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
