Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 17 June 2091 at 02:41.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1939" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2091 after 8 days on 1 July 2091 at 01:54.
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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1131 of Meeus index or 2084 from Brown series.
Length of current 1131 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 35 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes longer than next lunation 1132 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 9 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠245.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠280.5°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 11 June 2091 at 19:05 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 June 2091 at 11:38 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 369 716 km (229 731 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 857 km (227 954 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♍ Virgo at 07:10 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 5 July 2091 at 03:56 in ♓ Pisces.
At 07:10 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
4 days after previous North standstill on 17 June 2091 at 21:16 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.975°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.969° in the next southern standstill on 30 June 2091 at 20:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 8 days on 1 July 2091 at 01:54 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
