Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 28 September 2038 at 18:57.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1918".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2038 after 10 days on 13 October 2038 at 04:22.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 479 of Meeus index or 1432 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 55 minutes. It is 59 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 49 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 20 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠339.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠355.4°.
2 days after point of perigee on 30 September 2038 at 00:20 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 15 October 2038 at 07:13 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 364 520 km (226 502 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 282 km (252 452 mi).
10 days after ascending node on 22 September 2038 at 07:26 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 4 October 2038 at 21:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.
10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 22 September 2038 at 17:24 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.372°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.486° at the point of next southern standstill on 5 October 2038 at 08:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 10 days on 13 October 2038 at 04:22 in ♈ Aries 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.
