Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 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 ∠25° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1794" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2069 after 9 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 5 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 17 October 2069 at 05:28 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 October 2069 at 09:15 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 399 627 km (248 317 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 831 km (221 725 mi).
4 days 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 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 October 2069 at 23:39 in ♈ Aries.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 03:47 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-19.268°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2069. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠19.271° in its northern standstill point on 2 November 2069 at 01:44 in ♊ Gemini.
After 9 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.
