Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 24 August 2069 at 23:17.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Harvest Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2069 after 1 day on 1 September 2069 at 09:06.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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.

Lunation 861 / 1814

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 861 of Meeus index or 1814 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.56 days

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.

Lunation length longer than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠99.7°

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°).

Moon before perigee

7 days after point of apogee on 22 August 2069 at 23:32 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 September 2069 at 20:15 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 381 136 km

Moon is 381 136 km (236 827 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 898 km (226 116 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 22 August 2069 at 19:50 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 5 September 2069 at 05:58 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 26 August 2069 at 12:58 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.563°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.464° in the next northern standstill on 8 September 2069 at 10:56 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day 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.
