Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 3 December 2097 at 19:26.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2097 after 13 days on 19 December 2097 at 00:04.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1211 of Meeus index or 2164 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 6 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2097. It is 16 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 6 hours and 22 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 41 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠145.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠172.3°.
14 days after point of perigee on 21 November 2097 at 08:58 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 7 December 2097 at 05:05 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 404 674 km (251 453 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 180 km (252 389 mi).
4 days after descending node on 30 November 2097 at 14:46 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 15 December 2097 at 04:28 in ♉ Taurus.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 17:37 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-27.873°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠27.860° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 19 December 2097 at 11:51.
In 13 days on 19 December 2097 at 00:04 in ♋ Cancer 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.
