Gibbous ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 2 August 2069 at 23:44.
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 ∠15° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2069 after 24 days on 1 September 2069 at 09:06.
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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 860 of Meeus index or 1813 from Brown series.
Length of current 860 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 50 minutes. It is 2 hours and 42 minutes shorter than next lunation 861 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠66.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠99.7°. 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 17:00, this is 12 days after last apogee on 26 July 2069 at 04:43 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 22 August 2069 at 23:32 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 368 723 km (229 114 mi) away from Earth. It is 6 215 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 1 633 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 days after its ascending node on 26 July 2069 at 17:40 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 August 2069 at 03:46 in ♉ Taurus.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 30 July 2069 at 03:42 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.783°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.686° in the next northern standstill on 12 August 2069 at 05:16 in ♊ Gemini.
After 9 days on 16 August 2069 at 22:03 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
