Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 20 October 2099 at 23:27.
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 ∠17° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1800" and ∠1929".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2099 after 6 days on 29 October 2099 at 04:20.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1234 of Meeus index or 2187 from Brown series.
Length of current 1234 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 57 minutes. 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°).
9 days 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 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 October 2099 at 03:06 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 398 126 km (247 384 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 825 km (252 168 mi).
10 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 October 2099 at 20:01 in ♓ Pisces.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 18 October 2099 at 19:06 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.609°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.524° in the next northern standstill on 2 November 2099 at 11:20 in ♊ Gemini.
After 6 days on 29 October 2099 at 04:20 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
