Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1923".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2099 after 16 days on 29 October 2099 at 04:20.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
13 days after point of apogee on 28 September 2099 at 22:34 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 October 2099 at 10:26 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 363 375 km (225 791 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 782 km (222 315 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♍ Virgo at 10:42 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 25 October 2099 at 20:01 in ♓ Pisces.

6 days after previous North standstill on 6 October 2099 at 05:56 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.657°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.609° in the next southern standstill on 18 October 2099 at 19:06 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 14 October 2099 at 01:32 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
