Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 5 April 2099 at 08:37.
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 ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1892" and ∠1916".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2099 after 26 days on 4 May 2099 at 17:58.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1227 of Meeus index or 2180 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 43 minutes. It is 2 hours and 56 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 59 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 4 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠199.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠227.5°.
4 days after point of perigee on 4 April 2099 at 03:23 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 16 April 2099 at 08:34 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 378 848 km (235 405 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 586 km (252 019 mi).
3 days after descending node on 4 April 2099 at 16:08 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 18 April 2099 at 13:19 in ♓ Pisces.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
10 days since the previous standstill on 29 March 2099 at 02:47 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.678°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.656° at the point of next southern standstill on 10 April 2099 at 17:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 12 days on 20 April 2099 at 15:30 in ♈ Aries the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
