Crescent ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 23 January 2069 at 03:36.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1935" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2069 after 12 days on 6 February 2069 at 05:29.
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 854 of Meeus index or 1807 from Brown series.
Length of current 854 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 45 minutes longer than next lunation 855 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠310.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠332.8°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 14 January 2069 at 12:33 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 26 January 2069 at 07:47 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 370 452 km (230 188 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 478 km (227 719 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 17 January 2069 at 13:49 in ♏ Scorpio, 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 30 January 2069 at 12:42 in ♉ Taurus.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 19 January 2069 at 21:30 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.561°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.473° in the next northern standstill on 1 February 2069 at 18:36 in ♊ Gemini.
After 12 days on 6 February 2069 at 05:29 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
