Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 24 August 2069 at 23:17.
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 is passing first ∠3° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1814" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2069 after 4 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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°.
4 days after point of apogee on 22 August 2069 at 23:32 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 3 September 2069 at 20:15 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 395 223 km (245 580 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 898 km (226 116 mi).
4 days after ascending node on 22 August 2069 at 19:50 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 5 September 2069 at 05:58 in ♉ Taurus.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 26 August 2069 at 12:58 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.563°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.464° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 September 2069 at 10:56 in ♊ Gemini.
In 4 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.
