Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 27 May 2099 at 07:16.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1919" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2099 after 1 day on 3 June 2099 at 03:37.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1229 of Meeus index or 2182 from Brown series.
Length of current 1229 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 54 minutes. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than next lunation 1230 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 50 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 19 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠261.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠294.6°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 29 May 2099 at 07:58 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 June 2099 at 21:17 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 373 499 km (232 082 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 057 km (251 069 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 29 May 2099 at 05:10 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 June 2099 at 21:49 in ♓ Pisces.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 22 May 2099 at 13:50 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.471°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.425° in the next southern standstill on 4 June 2099 at 10:57 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day on 3 June 2099 at 03:37 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
