Crescent ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 17 October 2098 at 16:57.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2098 after 18 days on 9 November 2098 at 00:15.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1221 of Meeus index or 2174 from Brown series.
Length of current 1221 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 32 minutes. It is 2 hours and 30 minutes shorter than next lunation 1222 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠26.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠48.5°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:37, this is 15 days after last apogee on 5 October 2098 at 09:05 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 2 November 2098 at 03:39 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 366 149 km (227 514 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 641 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 207 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 days after its ascending node on 10 October 2098 at 04:03 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 October 2098 at 06:35 in ♎ Libra.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 16 October 2098 at 02:36 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.546°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.513° in the next southern standstill on 29 October 2098 at 00:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 days on 24 October 2098 at 10:49 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
