Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 16 July 2091 at 14:15.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1885" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2091 after 13 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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1132 of Meeus index or 2085 from Brown series.
Length of current 1132 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 6 minutes. It is 53 minutes longer than next lunation 1133 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 38 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 31 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠280.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠310.2°. 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°).
7 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 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 July 2091 at 04:02 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 380 257 km (236 281 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 671 km (229 703 mi).
12 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 July 2091 at 10:20 in ♍ Virgo.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 15 July 2091 at 05:57 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.955°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.921° in the next southern standstill on 28 July 2091 at 05:06 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 13 days on 30 July 2091 at 12:01 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
