Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1924".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2099 after 15 days on 29 October 2099 at 04:20.
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 16:51 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1233 of Meeus index or 2186 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 42 minutes is the length of new lunation 1233. 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 perigee on this date at 10:26, this is 14 days after last apogee on 28 September 2099 at 22:34 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 26 October 2099 at 03:06 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 357 782 km (222 315 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 726 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 574 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its descending node on 12 October 2099 at 10:42 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 October 2099 at 20:01 in ♓ Pisces.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous North standstill on 6 October 2099 at 05:56 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.657°. Next 5 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.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
