Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 5 February 2099 at 12:48.
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 first ∠2° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2099 after 28 days on 6 March 2099 at 22:59.
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 1225 of Meeus index or 2178 from Brown series.
Length of current 1225 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 58 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2099. It is 17 minutes longer than next lunation 1226 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 14 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 49 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠149°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠175.1°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 04:14, this is 12 days after last apogee on 24 January 2099 at 12:47 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 20 February 2099 at 17:45 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 357 384 km (222 068 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 124 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 972 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
10 days after its ascending node on 26 January 2099 at 21:58 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 February 2099 at 19:39 in ♍ Virgo.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 2 February 2099 at 10:56 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.479°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.548° in the next southern standstill on 15 February 2099 at 03:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 13 days on 20 February 2099 at 04:05 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
