Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 8 September 2069 at 01:22.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1926" and ∠1906".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2069 after 21 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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
5 days after point of perigee on 3 September 2069 at 20:15 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 19 September 2069 at 17:06 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 372 207 km (231 279 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 575 km (252 013 mi).
4 days after descending node on 5 September 2069 at 05:58 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 18 September 2069 at 23:24 in ♎ Libra.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 8 September 2069 at 10:56 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.464°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.361° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 September 2069 at 21:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 5 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.
