Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 30 August 2099 at 17:56.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2099 after 27 days on 29 September 2099 at 10:45.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1232 of Meeus index or 2185 from Brown series.
Length of current 1232 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 56 minutes. It is 46 minutes shorter than next lunation 1233 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠339.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠355.4°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 19:45, this is 15 days after last perigee on 17 August 2099 at 14:24 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 14 September 2099 at 23:26 in ♍ Virgo.
This apogee Moon is 406 116 km (252 349 mi) away from Earth. It is 708 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 593 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♓ Pisces at 08:09 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 14 September 2099 at 23:44 in ♍ Virgo.
At 08:09 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
7 days after previous South standstill on 25 August 2099 at 05:13 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.632°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.676° in the next northern standstill on 8 September 2099 at 23:00 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 14 September 2099 at 16:50 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
