Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days 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 ∠15° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1946" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2069 after 18 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 26 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 13 July 2069 at 15:08 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 July 2069 at 04:43 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 368 356 km (228 886 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 051 km (251 066 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 13 July 2069 at 03:06 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 July 2069 at 17:40 in ♏ Scorpio.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 22:08 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠19.867°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-19.783° in its southern standstill point on 30 July 2069 at 03:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 2 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.
