Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 16 November 2098 at 00:01.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1920" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2098 after 18 days on 8 December 2098 at 13:45.
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 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 16 November 2098 at 08:08 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 November 2098 at 00:33 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 373 280 km (231 945 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 413 km (251 291 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 19 November 2098 at 13:21 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 December 2098 at 17:44 in ♈ Aries.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous North standstill on 12 November 2098 at 08:09 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.455°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.393° in the next southern standstill on 25 November 2098 at 09:14 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 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.
