Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 8 April 2098 at 22:56.
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 ∠10° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1951" and ∠1913".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2098 after 3 days on 15 April 2098 at 19:04.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1215 of Meeus index or 2168 from Brown series.
Length of current 1215 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 45 minutes. It is 2 hours and 54 minutes longer than next lunation 1216 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 7 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠260.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠294.5°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 11 April 2098 at 03:38 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 April 2098 at 14:16 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 367 328 km (228 247 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 262 km (251 197 mi).
9 days after its ascending node on 2 April 2098 at 16:45 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 15 April 2098 at 14:53 in ♎ Libra.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 7 April 2098 at 20:47 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.320°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.319° in the next southern standstill on 21 April 2098 at 01:51 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 3 days on 15 April 2098 at 19:04 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
