Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 5 October 2097 at 11:45.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2097 after 10 days on 21 October 2097 at 01:23.
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 1209 of Meeus index or 2162 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 23 minutes. It is 2 hours and 55 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 39 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 24 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠76.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠112.4°.
11 days after point of perigee on 29 September 2097 at 06:20 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 12 October 2097 at 16:09 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 403 254 km (250 570 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 378 km (251 269 mi).
3 days after descending node on 7 October 2097 at 00:55 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 21 October 2097 at 09:50 in ♉ Taurus.
16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 28 September 2097 at 13:01 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.911°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-27.965° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 October 2097 at 03:02 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 10 days on 21 October 2097 at 01:23 in ♈ Aries 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.
