Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 15 October 2069 at 04:03.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1926".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2069 after 13 days on 30 October 2069 at 03:35.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 863 of Meeus index or 1816 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 34 minutes. It is 26 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 50 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 13 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠161.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠185.4°.
14 days 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 17 October 2069 at 05:28 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 405 419 km (251 916 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 378 km (252 512 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♏ Scorpio at 05:04 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 29 October 2069 at 23:39 in ♈ Aries.
At 05:04 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
10 days since the previous standstill on 5 October 2069 at 17:07 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.306°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.268° at the point of next southern standstill on 20 October 2069 at 03:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 13 days on 30 October 2069 at 03:35 in ♉ Taurus the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
