Crescent ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 30 August 2038 at 10:13.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1945" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2038 after 13 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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 478 of Meeus index or 1431 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 45 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2038. It is 10 minutes shorter 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 59 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 10 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠319.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠339.4°.
10 days after point of apogee on 21 August 2038 at 01:57 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 September 2038 at 22:39 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 368 569 km (229 018 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 106 km (226 245 mi).
5 days after ascending node on 26 August 2038 at 03:40 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 7 September 2038 at 20:51 in ♑ Capricorn.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 26 August 2038 at 08:58 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.151°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.232° at the point of next southern standstill on 8 September 2038 at 03:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 13 days on 13 September 2038 at 12:24 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
