Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 29 January 2069 at 21:39.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1919" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2069 after 4 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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
6 days after point of perigee on 26 January 2069 at 07:47 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 February 2069 at 08:23 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 373 605 km (232 147 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 051 km (251 687 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 30 January 2069 at 12:42 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 February 2069 at 15:55 in ♏ Scorpio.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 18:36 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠20.473°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-20.335° in its southern standstill point on 16 February 2069 at 07:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 4 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.
