Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Full Moon is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 99%. The 15 days old Moon is in ♈ Aries.
* The exact date and time of this Full Moon phase is on 30 September 2069 at 18:09 UTC.
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1917".
The Full Moon this days is the Hunter of October 2069.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 862 of Meeus index or 1815 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 28 minutes. It is 2 hours and 6 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 3 hours and 44 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 19 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠133.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠161.2°.
Moon is at perigee at 22:56. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 19 September 2069 at 17:06 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 17 October 2069 at 05:28 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 359 277 km (223 244 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 231 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 079 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
12 days after ascending node on 18 September 2069 at 23:24 in ♎ Libra. 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 2 October 2069 at 12:51 in ♉ Taurus.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 22 September 2069 at 21:04 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.361°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.306° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 October 2069 at 17:07 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
