Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 1 June 2091 at 17:31.
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.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1900" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2091 after 27 days on 1 July 2091 at 01:54.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1130 of Meeus index or 2083 from Brown series.
Length of current 1130 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 34 minutes. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes longer than next lunation 1131 length.
Length of current synodic month is 50 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 13 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠214.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠245.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
3 days after point of perigee on 30 May 2091 at 19:30 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 June 2091 at 19:05 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 377 178 km (234 368 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 966 km (251 634 mi).
8 days after its ascending node on 26 May 2091 at 06:27 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 June 2091 at 23:53 in ♒ Aquarius.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 09:48 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.930°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.975° in its northern standstill point on 17 June 2091 at 21:16 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 17 June 2091 at 02:41 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
