Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 26 November 2038 at 13:47.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1941" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2038 after 13 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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 481 of Meeus index or 1434 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 15 minutes. It is 1 hour and 19 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 1 hour and 29 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 40 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠10.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠28.2°.
2 days after point of perigee on 25 November 2038 at 22:45 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 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 8 December 2038 at 13:35 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 369 196 km (229 408 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 980 km (252 264 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 08:54 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 12 December 2038 at 16:05 in ♊ Gemini.
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.
12 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 day to face maximum declination of ∠-23.865° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 November 2038 at 02:24 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 13 days on 11 December 2038 at 17:30 in ♊ Gemini 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.
