Crescent ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 15 December 2098 at 07:52.
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 ∠10° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1949" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2099 after 21 days on 7 January 2099 at 01:50.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 11 December 2098 at 21:02 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 December 2098 at 21:01 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 367 834 km (228 561 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 186 km (251 771 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♎ Libra at 15:17 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 30 December 2098 at 20:34 in ♈ Aries.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 9 December 2098 at 15:23 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.352°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.323° in the next southern standstill on 22 December 2098 at 16:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 6 days on 22 December 2098 at 15:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
