Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 19 November 2038 at 22:10.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2038 after 17 days on 11 December 2038 at 17:30.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
13 days after point of apogee on 11 November 2038 at 08:59 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 25 November 2038 at 22:45 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 363 742 km (226 019 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 562 km (222 179 mi).
9 days after ascending node on 15 November 2038 at 11:00 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 28 November 2038 at 08:54 in ♑ Capricorn.
9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 16 November 2038 at 07:17 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.829°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.865° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 November 2038 at 02:24 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 2 days on 26 November 2038 at 13:47 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
