Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 16 September 2090 at 23:48.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1912".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2090 after 17 days on 8 October 2090 at 15:54.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 9 September 2090 at 14:56 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 23 September 2090 at 11:39 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 365 234 km (226 946 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 224 km (221 969 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 9 September 2090 at 07:13 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 23 September 2090 at 00:57 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 17 September 2090 at 14:20 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.226°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.246° in the next southern standstill on 30 September 2090 at 02:41 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 days on 23 September 2090 at 17:03 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
