Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 9 August 2099 at 07:14.
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 first ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1829" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2099 after 20 days on 30 August 2099 at 17:56.
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 1231 of Meeus index or 2184 from Brown series.
Length of current 1231 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 54 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2099. It is 2 minutes shorter than next lunation 1232 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 50 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 19 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠320.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠339.4°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 5 August 2099 at 08:15 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 August 2099 at 14:24 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 391 947 km (243 545 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 644 km (223 472 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 5 August 2099 at 03:00 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 August 2099 at 13:42 in ♍ Virgo.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 28 July 2099 at 23:58 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.504°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.579° in the next northern standstill on 12 August 2099 at 14:22 in ♊ Gemini.
After 5 days on 16 August 2099 at 08:54 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
