Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days 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 first ∠4° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2099 after 2 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 12 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 03:06, this is 12 days after last perigee on 13 October 2099 at 10:26 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 10 November 2099 at 19:35 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 405 825 km (252 168 mi) away from Earth. It is 417 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 884 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 25 October 2099 at 20:01 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 November 2099 at 18:31 in ♍ Virgo.

7 days after previous South standstill on 18 October 2099 at 19:06 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.609°. Next 6 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 2 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.
