Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 84% and growing larger. The 11 days young Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 30 December 2098 at 19:20.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♊ Gemini later.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1862" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2099 after 3 days on 7 January 2099 at 01:50.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1224 of Meeus index or 2177 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 15 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 4 hours and 59 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 4 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠115.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠149°.
6 days after point of apogee on 27 December 2098 at 21:01 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 8 January 2099 at 18:21 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 385 046 km (239 256 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 107 km (224 381 mi).
3 days after ascending node on 30 December 2098 at 20:34 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 12 January 2099 at 15:35 in ♎ Libra.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 22 December 2098 at 16:33 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.323°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.354° at the point of next northern standstill on 6 January 2099 at 00:46 in ♋ Cancer.
In 3 days on 7 January 2099 at 01:50 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.
