Gibbous ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 14 August 2038 at 22:57.
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 ∠12° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1808" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2038 after 28 days on 13 September 2038 at 12:24.
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 477 of Meeus index or 1430 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 32 minutes. It is 47 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 12 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 57 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠293.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠319.9°.
10 days after point of perigee on 5 August 2038 at 21:36 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 21 August 2038 at 01:57 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 396 416 km (246 321 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 583 km (251 396 mi).
4 days after descending node on 11 August 2038 at 18:25 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 August 2038 at 03:40 in ♋ Cancer.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 11 August 2038 at 22:09 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.076°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.151° at the point of next northern standstill on 26 August 2038 at 08:58 in ♋ Cancer.
In 13 days on 30 August 2038 at 10:13 in ♍ Virgo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
