Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 4 October 2089 at 01:15.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1806" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2089 after 10 days on 19 October 2089 at 13:04.
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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1110 of Meeus index or 2063 from Brown series.
Length of current 1110 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 40 minutes. It is 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter than next lunation 1111 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠38.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠64.1°. 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 1 October 2089 at 16:29 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 October 2089 at 11:47 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 396 903 km (246 624 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 603 km (251 409 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 3 October 2089 at 21:22 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 October 2089 at 03:46 in ♈ Aries.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 17:53 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.220°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2089. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.262° in its northern standstill point on 24 October 2089 at 02:33 in ♊ Gemini.
After 10 days on 19 October 2089 at 13:04 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
