Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1935" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2099 after 13 days on 1 August 2099 at 02:59.
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 01:01 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1231 of Meeus index or 2184 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 54 minutes is the length of new lunation 1231. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2099. It is 2 minutes shorter than next lunation 1232 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 50 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 19 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠320.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠339.4°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 8 July 2099 at 15:42 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 20 July 2099 at 12:45 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 370 527 km (230 235 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 045 km (226 207 mi).
9 days after its ascending node on 8 July 2099 at 23:54 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 July 2099 at 07:44 in ♍ Virgo.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 16 July 2099 at 05:09 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.454°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.504° in the next southern standstill on 28 July 2099 at 23:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
