Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 7 March 2069 at 22:35.
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 ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2069 after 27 days on 6 April 2069 at 16:13.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 855 of Meeus index or 1808 from Brown series.
Length of current 855 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than next lunation 856 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠332.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠349.7°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 22:33, this is 15 days after last perigee on 23 February 2069 at 06:27 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 23 March 2069 at 15:45 in ♈ Aries.
This apogee Moon is 405 880 km (252 202 mi) away from Earth. It is 472 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 829 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
11 days after its descending node on 26 February 2069 at 13:32 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 March 2069 at 17:45 in ♏ Scorpio.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 1 March 2069 at 00:20 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.222°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.085° in the next southern standstill on 15 March 2069 at 15:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 days on 23 March 2069 at 01:13 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
