Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 15 October 2069 at 04:03.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1926".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2069 after 13 days on 30 October 2069 at 03:35.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 863 of Meeus index or 1816 from Brown series.
Length of current 863 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 34 minutes. It is 26 minutes shorter than next lunation 864 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 50 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 13 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠161.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠185.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
14 days after point of perigee on 1 October 2069 at 22:56 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 October 2069 at 05:28 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 405 419 km (251 916 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 378 km (252 512 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♏ Scorpio at 05:04 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 29 October 2069 at 23:39 in ♈ Aries.
At 05:04 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
10 days after previous North standstill on 5 October 2069 at 17:07 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.306°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.268° in the next southern standstill on 20 October 2069 at 03:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 30 October 2069 at 03:35 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
