Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 13 March 2099 at 19:00.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1811" and ∠1929".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2099 after 20 days on 5 April 2099 at 08:37.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1226 of Meeus index or 2179 from Brown series.
Length of current 1226 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 58 minutes longer than next lunation 1227 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 57 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 6 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠175.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠199.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
8 days after point of perigee on 6 March 2099 at 16:59 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 March 2099 at 19:55 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 395 719 km (245 888 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 404 km (252 528 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 8 March 2099 at 04:56 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 March 2099 at 06:44 in ♈ Aries.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 14 March 2099 at 09:20 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.667°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.678° in the next northern standstill on 29 March 2099 at 02:47 in ♋ Cancer.
After 6 days on 21 March 2099 at 22:46 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
