Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 24 October 2098 at 10:49.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1884" and ∠1930".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2098 after 14 days on 9 November 2098 at 00:15.
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 1222 of Meeus index or 2175 from Brown series.
Length of current 1222 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 2 minutes. It is 2 hours and 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 1223 length.
Length of current synodic month is 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠48.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠78.8°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 21 October 2098 at 07:37 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 November 2098 at 03:39 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 380 402 km (236 371 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 370 km (251 264 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 23 October 2098 at 06:35 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 November 2098 at 11:42 in ♈ Aries.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 16 October 2098 at 02:36 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.546°. Next 3 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 14 days on 9 November 2098 at 00:15 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
