Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 30 September 2069 at 18:09.
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 first ∠4° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1918".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2069 after 27 days on 30 October 2069 at 03:35.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°.
1 day after point of perigee on 1 October 2069 at 22:56 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 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 17 October 2069 at 05:28 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 363 453 km (225 839 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 14 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 378 km (252 512 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♉ Taurus at 12:51 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 16 October 2069 at 05:04 in ♏ Scorpio.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
9 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 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.306° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 October 2069 at 17:07 in ♊ Gemini.
In 12 days on 15 October 2069 at 04:03 in ♎ Libra 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.
