Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 15 September 2069 at 11:35.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1785"

Harvest Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2069 after 14 days on 30 September 2069 at 18:09.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 862 / 1815

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 862 of Meeus index or 1815 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.69 days

Length of current 862 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 28 minutes. It is 2 hours and 6 minutes shorter than next lunation 863 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 44 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 19 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠133.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠133.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠161.2°. 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 apogee

12 days after point of perigee on 3 September 2069 at 20:15 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 September 2069 at 17:06 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 401 537 km

Moon is 401 537 km (249 504 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 575 km (252 013 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 5 September 2069 at 05:58 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 September 2069 at 23:24 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 8 September 2069 at 10:56 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.464°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.361° in the next southern standstill on 22 September 2069 at 21:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 14 days

After 14 days on 30 September 2069 at 18:09 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
