Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 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 ∠18° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2097 after 10 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 5 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 12:12, this is 15 days after last perigee on 24 October 2097 at 15:32 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 21 November 2097 at 08:58 in ♊ Gemini.
This apogee Moon is 405 184 km (251 770 mi) away from Earth. It is 224 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 525 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
6 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 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 November 2097 at 19:55 in ♈ Aries.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 8 November 2097 at 10:53 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.959°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.924° in the next northern standstill on 22 November 2097 at 02:03 in ♋ Cancer.
After 10 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.
