Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days 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 ∠20° 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 12 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 2 days 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°.
Moon is at apogee at 05:28. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 1 October 2069 at 22:56 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 30 October 2069 at 09:15 in ♉ Taurus.
This apogee Moon is 406 378 km (252 512 mi) away from Earth. It is 970 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 331 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after ascending node on 16 October 2069 at 05:04 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 29 October 2069 at 23:39 in ♈ Aries.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 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 2 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 12 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.
