Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 8 July 2091 at 17:21.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1839" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2091 after 15 days on 30 July 2091 at 12:01.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 9 July 2091 at 13:01 in ♈ Aries. 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 23 July 2091 at 04:02 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 389 829 km (242 229 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 671 km (229 703 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 5 July 2091 at 03:56 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 July 2091 at 10:20 in ♍ Virgo.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 05:57 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.955°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.921° in its southern standstill point on 28 July 2091 at 05:06 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day on 16 July 2091 at 14:15 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
