Crescent ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 16 August 2099 at 08:54.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1896".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2099 after 13 days on 30 August 2099 at 17:56.
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 1232 of Meeus index or 2185 from Brown series.
Length of current 1232 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 56 minutes. It is 46 minutes shorter than next lunation 1233 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠339.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠355.4°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 14:24, this is 12 days after last apogee on 5 August 2099 at 08:15 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 1 September 2099 at 19:45 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 359 644 km (223 472 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 864 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 712 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
12 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 August 2099 at 13:42 in ♍ Virgo.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 12 August 2099 at 14:22 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.579°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.632° in the next southern standstill on 25 August 2099 at 05:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 30 August 2099 at 17:56 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
