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 ∠11° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1816" and ∠1908".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2069 after 16 days on 30 September 2069 at 18:09.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 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.
Length of current 861 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 32 minutes. It is 2 hours and 56 minutes shorter than next lunation 862 length.
Length of current synodic month is 48 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 15 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠99.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠133.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
10 days after point of perigee on 3 September 2069 at 20:15 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 September 2069 at 17:06 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 394 759 km (245 292 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 575 km (252 013 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 5 September 2069 at 05:58 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 September 2069 at 23:24 in ♎ Libra.

6 days after previous North standstill on 8 September 2069 at 10:56 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.464°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.361° in the next southern standstill on 22 September 2069 at 21:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 15 September 2069 at 11:35 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
