Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 4 November 2097 at 02:08.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2097 after 11 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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1210 of Meeus index or 2163 from Brown series.
Length of current 1210 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 18 minutes. It is 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter than next lunation 1211 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 34 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 29 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠112.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠145.6°. 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°).
14 days after point of perigee on 24 October 2097 at 15:32 in ♊ Gemini. 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 9 November 2097 at 12:12 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 405 226 km (251 796 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 184 km (251 770 mi).
5 days after its descending node on 3 November 2097 at 09:02 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 17 November 2097 at 19:55 in ♈ Aries.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 10:53 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-27.959°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠27.924° in its northern standstill point on 22 November 2097 at 02:03 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 days on 19 November 2097 at 13:03 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
