Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 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.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1923".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2097 after 9 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 6 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.
Length of current 1209 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 23 minutes. It is 2 hours and 55 minutes shorter than next lunation 1210 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 39 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 24 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠76.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠112.4°. 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 29 September 2097 at 06:20 in ♋ Cancer. 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 12 October 2097 at 16:09 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 404 864 km (251 571 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 378 km (251 269 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 7 October 2097 at 00:55 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 October 2097 at 09:50 in ♉ Taurus.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 28 September 2097 at 13:01 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.911°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.965° in the next southern standstill on 12 October 2097 at 03:02 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 9 days on 21 October 2097 at 01:23 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
