Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days 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 ∠20° 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 12 days on 30 October 2069 at 03:35.
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 2 days 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 05:28, this is 15 days after last perigee on 1 October 2069 at 22:56 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 30 October 2069 at 09:15 in ♉ Taurus.
This apogee Moon is 406 378 km (252 512 mi) away from Earth. It is 970 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 331 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 16 October 2069 at 05:04 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 October 2069 at 23:39 in ♈ Aries.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 5 October 2069 at 17:07 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.306°. Next 2 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 12 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.
