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 ∠25° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1915".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2099 after 1 day 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 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1233 of Meeus index or 2186 from Brown series.
Length of current 1233 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 42 minutes. It is 1 hour and 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 1234 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 7 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠355.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠10.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 22:34, this is 13 days after last perigee on 14 September 2099 at 23:26 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 13 October 2099 at 10:26 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 406 272 km (252 446 mi) away from Earth. It is 864 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 437 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♓ Pisces at 14:28 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 12 October 2099 at 10:42 in ♍ Virgo.
At 14:28 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
7 days after previous South standstill on 21 September 2099 at 11:17 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.686°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.657° in the next northern standstill on 6 October 2099 at 05:56 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 29 September 2099 at 10:45 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
