Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 12 June 2090 at 05:18.
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 first ∠4° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1792" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2090 after 26 days on 11 July 2090 at 17:02.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 4 June 2090 at 21:08 in ♍ Virgo. 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 19 June 2090 at 00:40 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 399 888 km (248 479 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 160 km (251 133 mi).
9 days after its ascending node on 6 June 2090 at 01:10 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 June 2090 at 18:49 in ♓ Pisces.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 12 June 2090 at 22:32 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.449°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.446° in the next northern standstill on 27 June 2090 at 08:45 in ♋ Cancer.
After 12 days on 27 June 2090 at 17:11 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
