Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 3 November 2038 at 21:24.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2038 after 2 days on 11 November 2038 at 22:27.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 480 of Meeus index or 1433 from Brown series.
Length of current 480 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter than next lunation 481 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 50 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 19 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠355.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠10.8°. 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°).
12 days after point of perigee on 28 October 2038 at 10:19 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 November 2038 at 08:59 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 403 668 km (250 828 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 419 km (252 537 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 1 November 2038 at 00:41 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 November 2038 at 11:00 in ♋ Cancer.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 1 November 2038 at 16:10 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.732°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.829° in the next northern standstill on 16 November 2038 at 07:17 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 days on 11 November 2038 at 22:27 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
