Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1916" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2099 after 16 days on 27 December 2099 at 12:58.
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 23:09 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1236 of Meeus index or 2189 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 47 minutes is the length of new lunation 1236. It is 2 hours and 12 minutes shorter than next lunation 1237 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠49.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠81.3°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 8 December 2099 at 17:50 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 December 2099 at 13:16 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 374 159 km (232 492 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 339 km (251 245 mi).
5 days after its descending node on 5 December 2099 at 21:04 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 December 2099 at 01:02 in ♓ Pisces.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 29 November 2099 at 16:41 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.380°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.351° in the next southern standstill on 12 December 2099 at 13:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
