Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1899".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2090 after 14 days on 8 September 2090 at 22:44.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 08:59 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1121 of Meeus index or 2074 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 4 minutes is the length of new lunation 1121. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes shorter than next lunation 1122 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 40 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 29 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠348.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠3.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
12 days after point of apogee on 13 August 2090 at 08:23 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 26 August 2090 at 01:13 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 364 121 km (226 254 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 032 km (222 471 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 13 August 2090 at 01:17 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 26 August 2090 at 13:58 in ♍ Virgo.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 21 August 2090 at 05:49 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.266°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.232° in the next southern standstill on 2 September 2090 at 19:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
