Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 16 August 2069 at 22:03.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1898".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2069 after 9 days on 1 September 2069 at 09:06.
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 861 of Meeus index or 1814 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 32 minutes. It is 2 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 48 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 15 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠99.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠133.4°.
Moon is at apogee at 23:32. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 7 August 2069 at 17:00 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 3 September 2069 at 20:15 in ♈ Aries.
This apogee Moon is 404 552 km (251 377 mi) away from Earth. It is 856 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 157 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♏ Scorpio at 19:50 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 5 September 2069 at 05:58 in ♉ Taurus.
At 19:50 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
10 days since the previous standstill on 12 August 2069 at 05:16 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.686°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.563° at the point of next southern standstill on 26 August 2069 at 12:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 9 days on 1 September 2069 at 09:06 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
