The Full Moon this days is the Hunter of October 2098.

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠26.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠48.5°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 5 October 2098 at 09:05 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 October 2098 at 07:37 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon is in ascending node in ♈ Aries at 04:03 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 23 October 2098 at 06:35 in ♎ Libra.
At 04:03 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
8 days after previous South standstill on 1 October 2098 at 16:08 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.555°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.546° in the next northern standstill on 16 October 2098 at 02:36 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
