Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 11 July 2069 at 14:59.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2069 after 20 days on 2 August 2069 at 23:44.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 859 of Meeus index or 1812 from Brown series.
Length of current 859 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 59 minutes. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 860 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 45 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 24 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠40.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠66.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 15:08, this is 15 days after last apogee on 28 June 2069 at 10:15 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 26 July 2069 at 04:43 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 368 840 km (229 187 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2069. It is 6 332 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 1 516 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♉ Taurus at 03:06 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 26 July 2069 at 17:40 in ♏ Scorpio.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 2 July 2069 at 18:22 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.920°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.867° in the next northern standstill on 15 July 2069 at 22:08 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 days on 18 July 2069 at 11:13 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
