Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days 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 ∠5° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2090 after 7 days on 12 June 2090 at 05:18.
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 6 days 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 21:08, this is 13 days after last apogee on 22 May 2090 at 05:49 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 19 June 2090 at 00:40 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 369 767 km (229 763 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2090. It is 7 259 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 589 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 June 2090 at 01:10 in ♍ Virgo.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 30 May 2090 at 23:17 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.414°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.449° in the next southern standstill on 12 June 2090 at 22:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 7 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.
