Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 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 ∠18° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2090 after 24 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 19 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 18:12, this is 15 days after last perigee on 30 June 2090 at 23:26 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 28 July 2090 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 404 895 km (251 590 mi) away from Earth. It is 513 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 814 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♓ Pisces at 21:11 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 30 July 2090 at 05:38 in ♍ Virgo.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 10 July 2090 at 07:05 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.430°. Next 8 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 10 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.
