Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 9 November 2098 at 00:15.
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 about ∠7° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1890" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2098 after 28 days on 8 December 2098 at 13:45.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 2 November 2098 at 03:39 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 16 November 2098 at 08:08 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 379 183 km (235 613 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 207 km (230 036 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 6 November 2098 at 11:42 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 November 2098 at 13:21 in ♎ Libra.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 29 October 2098 at 00:40 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.513°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.455° in the next northern standstill on 12 November 2098 at 08:09 in ♋ Cancer.
After 12 days on 22 November 2098 at 23:51 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
