Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1913".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2090 after 15 days on 8 October 2090 at 15:54.
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 17:03 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1122 of Meeus index or 2075 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 6 minutes is the length of new lunation 1122. It is 1 hour and 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 1123 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 38 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 31 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠3.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠19.7°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 11:39, this is 13 days after last apogee on 9 September 2090 at 14:56 in ♓ Pisces.

This perigee Moon is 357 224 km (221 969 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 284 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 132 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♍ Virgo at 00:57 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 6 October 2090 at 13:25 in ♓ Pisces.
At 00:57 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
5 days after previous North standstill on 17 September 2090 at 14:20 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.226°. Next 6 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.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
