Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 29 May 2090 at 07:29.
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 ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1892" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2090 after 12 days on 12 June 2090 at 05:18.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1118 of Meeus index or 2071 from Brown series.
Length of current 1118 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 42 minutes. It is 1 hour and 34 minutes longer than next lunation 1119 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 7 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠280.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠310°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
8 days after point of apogee on 22 May 2090 at 05:49 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 June 2090 at 21:08 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 378 907 km (235 442 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 767 km (229 763 mi).
6 days after its descending node on 23 May 2090 at 16:27 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 June 2090 at 01:10 in ♍ Virgo.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 23:17 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.414°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.449° in its southern standstill point on 12 June 2090 at 22:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 days on 12 June 2090 at 05:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
