Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 28 October 2038 at 03:53.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1929" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2038 after 10 days on 11 November 2038 at 22:27.
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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 480 of Meeus index or 1433 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 50 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 19 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠355.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠10.8°.
4 days after point of perigee on 28 October 2038 at 10:19 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 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 11 November 2038 at 08:59 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 371 605 km (230 905 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 419 km (252 537 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 00:41 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 15 November 2038 at 11:00 in ♋ Cancer.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
At 16:10 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-23.732°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠23.829° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 16 November 2038 at 07:17.
In 10 days on 11 November 2038 at 22:27 in ♉ Taurus 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.
