Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 9 November 2098 at 00:15.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1890" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2098 after 28 days on 8 December 2098 at 13:45.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1222 of Meeus index or 2175 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 2 minutes. It is 2 hours and 31 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 18 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 45 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠48.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠78.8°.
8 days after point of apogee on 2 November 2098 at 03:39 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 16 November 2098 at 08:08 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 379 183 km (235 613 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 370 207 km (230 036 mi).
4 days after ascending node on 6 November 2098 at 11:42 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 19 November 2098 at 13:21 in ♎ Libra.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 29 October 2098 at 00:40 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.513°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠28.455° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 November 2098 at 08:09 in ♋ Cancer.
In 12 days on 22 November 2098 at 23:51 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
