Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 22 November 2098 at 23:51.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1829" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2098 after 14 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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1223 of Meeus index or 2176 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 33 minutes. It is 2 hours and 10 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 2 hours and 49 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 14 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠78.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠115.9°.
8 days after point of perigee on 16 November 2098 at 08:08 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 30 November 2098 at 00:33 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 391 888 km (243 508 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 413 km (251 291 mi).
4 days after descending node on 19 November 2098 at 13:21 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 3 December 2098 at 17:44 in ♈ Aries.
18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 12 November 2098 at 08:09 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.455°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-28.393° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 November 2098 at 09:14 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 14 days on 8 December 2098 at 13:45 in ♊ Gemini 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.
