Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 21 October 2097 at 01:23.
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 ∠17° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1930".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2097 after 26 days on 19 November 2097 at 13:03.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°.
Moon is at perigee at 15:32. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 12 October 2097 at 16:09 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next apogee on 9 November 2097 at 12:12 in ♑ Capricorn.
This perigee Moon is 367 167 km (228 147 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 659 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 3 189 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after ascending node on 21 October 2097 at 09:50 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 3 November 2097 at 09:02 in ♏ Scorpio.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 12 October 2097 at 03:02 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.965°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠27.974° at the point of next northern standstill on 25 October 2097 at 18:37 in ♊ Gemini.
In 10 days on 4 November 2097 at 02:08 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.
