Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 5 December 2099 at 04:46.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2099 after 19 days on 27 December 2099 at 12:58.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1235 of Meeus index or 2188 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 40 minutes. It is 2 hours and 7 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 4 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 5 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠27.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠49.8°.
Moon is at perigee at 17:50. It is 16 days after previous apogee on 22 November 2099 at 17:25 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 20 December 2099 at 13:16 in ♈ Aries.
This perigee Moon is 366 610 km (227 801 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 102 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 3 746 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
2 days after descending node on 5 December 2099 at 21:04 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 19 December 2099 at 01:02 in ♓ Pisces.
16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 29 November 2099 at 16:41 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.380°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.351° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 December 2099 at 13:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 3 days on 11 December 2099 at 23:09 in ♐ Sagittarius the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
