Gibbous ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 1 September 2069 at 09:06.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2069 after 27 days on 30 September 2069 at 18:09.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 perigee at 20:15. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 22 August 2069 at 23:32 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next apogee on 19 September 2069 at 17:06 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 363 898 km (226 116 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 390 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 458 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 days after ascending node on 22 August 2069 at 19:50 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 5 September 2069 at 05:58 in ♉ Taurus.
11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
7 days 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 4 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 11 days on 15 September 2069 at 11:35 in ♍ Virgo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
