Gibbous ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 30 November 2098 at 21:56.
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 ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1794" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2098 after 5 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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1223 of Meeus index or 2176 from Brown series.
Length of current 1223 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 33 minutes. It is 2 hours and 10 minutes shorter than next lunation 1224 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠78.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠115.9°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 30 November 2098 at 00:33 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 December 2098 at 21:02 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 399 460 km (248 213 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 722 km (227 870 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♈ Aries at 17:44 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 16 December 2098 at 15:17 in ♎ Libra.
At 17:44 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
8 days after previous South standstill on 25 November 2098 at 09:14 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.393°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.352° in the next northern standstill on 9 December 2098 at 15:23 in ♊ Gemini.
After 5 days on 8 December 2098 at 13:45 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
