Crescent ♎ Libra
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1908".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2099 after 14 days on 29 September 2099 at 10:45.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 16:51 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1233 of Meeus index or 2186 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 42 minutes is the length of new lunation 1233. It is 1 hour and 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 1234 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 7 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠355.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠10.7°. 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 23:26, this is 13 days after last apogee on 1 September 2099 at 19:45 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 28 September 2099 at 22:34 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 357 286 km (222 007 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 222 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 070 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♍ Virgo at 23:44 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 28 September 2099 at 14:28 in ♓ Pisces.

5 days after previous North standstill on 8 September 2099 at 23:00 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.676°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.686° in the next southern standstill on 21 September 2099 at 11:17 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
