Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 24 June 2091 at 08:31.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1952" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2091 after 2 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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 27 June 2091 at 11:38 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 July 2091 at 13:01 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 367 134 km (228 126 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 243 km (251 185 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 22 June 2091 at 07:10 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 5 July 2091 at 03:56 in ♓ Pisces.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous North standstill on 17 June 2091 at 21:16 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.975°. Next 2 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 2 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.
