Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 1 September 2090 at 00:44.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1859" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2090 after 6 days on 8 September 2090 at 22:44.
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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1121 of Meeus index or 2074 from Brown series.
Length of current 1121 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 4 minutes. 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 26 August 2090 at 01:13 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 September 2090 at 14:56 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 385 550 km (239 570 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 276 km (252 448 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 26 August 2090 at 13:58 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 September 2090 at 07:13 in ♓ Pisces.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 19:58 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.232°. Next 15 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.226° in its northern standstill point on 17 September 2090 at 14:20 in ♊ Gemini.
After 6 days on 8 September 2090 at 22:44 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
