Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 25 December 2097 at 15:20.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1784" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2098 after 16 days on 17 January 2098 at 10:36.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
11 days after point of perigee on 19 December 2097 at 17:43 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 3 January 2098 at 11:59 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 401 827 km (249 684 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 688 km (252 704 mi).
3 days after descending node on 27 December 2097 at 16:48 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 11 January 2098 at 08:24 in ♈ Aries.
16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 19 December 2097 at 11:51 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.860°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-27.839° at the point of next southern standstill on 1 January 2098 at 23:06 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 2 days on 2 January 2098 at 14:32 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
