Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 5 December 2069 at 12:03.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2069 after 16 days on 28 December 2069 at 00:50.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 864 of Meeus index or 1817 from Brown series.
Length of current 864 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2069. It is 1 hour and 15 minutes longer than next lunation 865 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 47 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠185.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠211.5°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 10 December 2069 at 12:50 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 20 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 31 December 2069 at 15:07 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 405 342 km (251 868 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 20 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 337 km (230 117 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 9 December 2069 at 16:16 in ♎ Libra, 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 23 December 2069 at 17:14 in ♈ Aries.
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 29 November 2069 at 13:04 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.315°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.339° in the next southern standstill on 13 December 2069 at 16:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 2 days on 13 December 2069 at 17:38 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
