Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 27 June 2090 at 17:11.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2090 after 11 days on 11 July 2090 at 17:02.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1119 of Meeus index or 2072 from Brown series.
Length of current 1119 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 8 minutes. It is 28 minutes longer than next lunation 1120 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 36 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 33 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠310°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠331.5°. 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 23:26, this is 11 days after last apogee on 19 June 2090 at 00:40 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 16 July 2090 at 18:12 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 366 238 km (227 570 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 730 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 118 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
10 days after its descending node on 19 June 2090 at 18:49 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 July 2090 at 01:54 in ♍ Virgo.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 27 June 2090 at 08:45 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.446°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.430° in the next southern standstill on 10 July 2090 at 07:05 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 11 days on 11 July 2090 at 17:02 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
