Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 29 August 2091 at 00:39.
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 ∠18° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2091 after 26 days on 27 September 2091 at 15:56.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1133 of Meeus index or 2086 from Brown series.
Length of current 1133 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 13 minutes. It is 19 minutes longer than next lunation 1134 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠310.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠332.3°. 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°).
14 days after point of perigee on 18 August 2091 at 06:08 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 September 2091 at 01:49 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 404 703 km (251 471 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 142 km (251 744 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 28 August 2091 at 18:22 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 September 2091 at 03:32 in ♍ Virgo.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 24 August 2091 at 11:30 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.873°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.885° in the next northern standstill on 8 September 2091 at 00:27 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 days on 13 September 2091 at 09:34 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
