Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 15 September 2069 at 11:35.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1911".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2069 after 11 days on 30 September 2069 at 18:09.
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 4 days 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.
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.
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.
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 is reaching point of apogee on this date at 17:06, this is 15 days after last perigee on 3 September 2069 at 20:15 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 1 October 2069 at 22:56 in ♈ Aries.
This apogee Moon is 405 575 km (252 013 mi) away from Earth. It is 167 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 134 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 18 September 2069 at 23:24 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 October 2069 at 12:51 in ♉ Taurus.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 8 September 2069 at 10:56 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.464°. Next 3 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.
After 11 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.
