Crescent ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 16 August 2069 at 22:03.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1807" and ∠1896".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2069 after 13 days on 1 September 2069 at 09:06.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 861 of Meeus index or 1814 from Brown series.
Length of current 861 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 32 minutes. It is 2 hours and 56 minutes shorter than next lunation 862 length.
Length of current synodic month is 48 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 15 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠99.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠133.4°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 7 August 2069 at 17:00 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 August 2069 at 23:32 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 396 726 km (246 514 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 552 km (251 377 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 9 August 2069 at 03:46 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 August 2069 at 19:50 in ♏ Scorpio.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 12 August 2069 at 05:16 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.686°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.563° in the next southern standstill on 26 August 2069 at 12:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 1 September 2069 at 09:06 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
