Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 2 October 2096 at 01:24.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1920".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2096 after 25 days on 31 October 2096 at 11:16.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1196 of Meeus index or 2149 from Brown series.
Length of current 1196 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 18 minutes. It is 2 hours and 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 1197 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 34 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 29 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠110.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠143.3°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 4 October 2096 at 00:44 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 October 2096 at 20:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 363 298 km (225 743 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 935 km (252 236 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 4 October 2096 at 22:17 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 October 2096 at 14:16 in ♏ Scorpio.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 25 September 2096 at 05:26 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.795°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.877° in the next northern standstill on 8 October 2096 at 03:20 in ♋ Cancer.
After 10 days on 16 October 2096 at 06:28 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
