Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 2 January 2098 at 14:32.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2098 after 13 days on 17 January 2098 at 10:36.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1212 of Meeus index or 2165 from Brown series.
Length of current 1212 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 22 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2098. It is 1 hour and 14 minutes longer than next lunation 1213 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 38 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 25 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠172.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠197°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 11:59, this is 14 days after last perigee on 19 December 2097 at 17:43 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 17 January 2098 at 06:41 in ♋ Cancer.
This apogee Moon is 406 688 km (252 704 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2098. It is 1 280 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 21 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
6 days after its descending node on 27 December 2097 at 16:48 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 January 2098 at 08:24 in ♈ Aries.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 1 January 2098 at 23:06 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.839°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.895° in the next northern standstill on 15 January 2098 at 22:37 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 17 January 2098 at 10:36 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
