Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 14 July 2089 at 17:11.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1831" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2089 after 5 days on 22 July 2089 at 14:50.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1107 of Meeus index or 2060 from Brown series.
Length of current 1107 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 40 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2089. It is 50 minutes shorter than next lunation 1108 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠348.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠3.5°. 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°).
8 days after point of perigee on 8 July 2089 at 18:12 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 July 2089 at 06:57 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 391 537 km (243 290 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 372 km (252 508 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 13 July 2089 at 23:07 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 28 July 2089 at 12:48 in ♈ Aries.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous North standstill on 6 July 2089 at 18:10 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.574°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.541° in the next southern standstill on 19 July 2089 at 19:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 5 days on 22 July 2089 at 14:50 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
