Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 11 July 2090 at 17:02.
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 about ∠6° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2090 after 25 days on 10 August 2090 at 06:51.
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 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°).
14 days after point of perigee on 30 June 2090 at 23:26 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 July 2090 at 18:12 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 405 023 km (251 670 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 895 km (251 590 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 3 July 2090 at 01:54 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 July 2090 at 21:11 in ♓ Pisces.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 10 July 2090 at 07:05 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.430°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.374° in the next northern standstill on 24 July 2090 at 19:29 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 days on 27 July 2090 at 01:19 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
