Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 30 July 2091 at 12:01.
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 ∠16° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1797" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2091 after 26 days on 29 August 2091 at 00:39.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 23 July 2091 at 04:02 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 August 2091 at 07:42 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 398 956 km (247 900 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 324 km (251 235 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 1 August 2091 at 10:40 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 August 2091 at 17:38 in ♌ Leo.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 28 July 2091 at 05:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.921°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.890° in the next northern standstill on 11 August 2091 at 15:21 in ♋ Cancer.
After 12 days on 15 August 2091 at 00:22 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
