Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 31 October 2096 at 11:16.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2096 after 28 days on 29 November 2096 at 21:34.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1197 of Meeus index or 2150 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 7 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 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 5 hours and 23 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 40 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠143.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠169.7°.
Moon is at perigee at 07:33. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 19 October 2096 at 20:10 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 16 November 2096 at 05:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 358 056 km (222 486 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 452 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 300 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 07:19 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 14 November 2096 at 20:36 in ♏ Scorpio.
At 07:19 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
9 days since the previous standstill on 22 October 2096 at 13:04 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.956°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.978° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 November 2096 at 10:38 in ♋ Cancer.
In 13 days on 15 November 2096 at 00:36 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.
