Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 25 June 2099 at 12:00.
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 ∠16° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1929" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2099 after 4 days on 2 July 2099 at 14:21.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1230 of Meeus index or 2183 from Brown series.
Length of current 1230 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 51 minutes. It is 57 minutes longer than next lunation 1231 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 53 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 16 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠294.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠320.2°. 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 perigee on 23 June 2099 at 09:41 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 8 July 2099 at 15:42 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 371 544 km (230 867 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 420 km (251 295 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 25 June 2099 at 06:00 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 8 July 2099 at 23:54 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 18 June 2099 at 20:43 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.404°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.409° in the next southern standstill on 1 July 2099 at 18:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 4 days on 2 July 2099 at 14:21 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
