Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 23 October 2069 at 07:57.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♓ Pisces

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1922"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1922" and ∠1931".

Hunter Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2069 after 3 days on 30 October 2069 at 03:35.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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.

Lunation 863 / 1816

The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 863 of Meeus index or 1816 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.77 days

Length of current 863 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 34 minutes. It is 26 minutes shorter than next lunation 864 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠161.2°

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 before perigee

9 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 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 October 2069 at 09:15 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 373 003 km

Moon is 373 003 km (231 773 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 831 km (221 725 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 October 2069 at 23:39 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 20 October 2069 at 03:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.268°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.271° in the next northern standstill on 2 November 2069 at 01:44 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 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.
