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 ∠5° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1909" and ∠1928".
The Full Moon this days is the Hunter of October 2097.
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 1209 of Meeus index or 2162 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 23 minutes. It is 2 hours and 55 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 1 hour and 39 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 24 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠76.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠112.4°.
8 days after point of apogee on 12 October 2097 at 16:09 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 24 October 2097 at 15:32 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 375 551 km (233 357 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 167 km (228 147 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 09:50 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 3 November 2097 at 09:02 in ♏ Scorpio.
At 09:50 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
9 days since the previous standstill on 12 October 2097 at 03:02 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.965°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.974° at the point of next northern standstill on 25 October 2097 at 18:37 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
