Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 22 July 2089 at 14:50.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1823" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2089 after 23 days on 21 August 2089 at 06:16.
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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 23 July 2089 at 06:57 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 August 2089 at 03:33 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 393 237 km (244 346 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 246 km (221 982 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 12:48 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 10 August 2089 at 02:59 in ♎ Libra.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 19 July 2089 at 19:41 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.541°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.449° in the next northern standstill on 3 August 2089 at 05:21 in ♊ Gemini.
After 8 days on 6 August 2089 at 08:28 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
