Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 27 July 2090 at 01:19.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2090 after 12 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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1120 of Meeus index or 2073 from Brown series.
Length of current 1120 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 40 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2090. It is 24 minutes shorter than next lunation 1121 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠331.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠348.5°. 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 18:43, this is 12 days after last apogee on 16 July 2090 at 18:12 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 13 August 2090 at 08:23 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 361 406 km (224 567 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 102 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 8 950 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 days after its descending node on 16 July 2090 at 21:11 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 30 July 2090 at 05:38 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.
3 days after previous North standstill on 24 July 2090 at 19:29 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.374°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.326° in the next southern standstill on 6 August 2090 at 13:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 days on 10 August 2090 at 06:51 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
