Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1924".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2099 after 14 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 01:32 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1234 of Meeus index or 2187 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 57 minutes is the length of new lunation 1234. It is 1 hour and 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 1235 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 47 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 22 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠27.7°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 13 October 2099 at 10:26 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 October 2099 at 03:06 in ♓ Pisces.

2 days 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 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 October 2099 at 20:01 in ♓ Pisces.

8 days after previous North standstill on 6 October 2099 at 05:56 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.657°. Next 4 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.
