Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 8 October 2090 at 15:54.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1871" and ∠1924".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2090 after 23 days on 7 November 2090 at 09:05.
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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1122 of Meeus index or 2075 from Brown series.
Length of current 1122 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 6 minutes. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 6 October 2090 at 16:44 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 October 2090 at 22:03 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 383 099 km (238 047 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 372 km (223 303 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 6 October 2090 at 13:25 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 October 2090 at 10:45 in ♍ Virgo.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 20:55 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.312°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.382° in its southern standstill point on 27 October 2090 at 11:28 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 8 days on 23 October 2090 at 02:09 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
