Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 13 November 2069 at 22:38.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1940".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2069 after 13 days on 28 November 2069 at 13:46.
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 864 of Meeus index or 1817 from Brown series.
Length of current 864 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2069. It is 1 hour and 15 minutes longer than next lunation 865 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 47 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠185.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠211.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
2 days after point of apogee on 13 November 2069 at 07:36 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 November 2069 at 21:53 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 403 488 km (250 716 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 487 km (222 132 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 12 November 2069 at 11:24 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 26 November 2069 at 10:32 in ♉ Taurus.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
13 days after previous North standstill on 2 November 2069 at 01:44 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.271°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.293° in the next southern standstill on 16 November 2069 at 09:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 28 November 2069 at 13:46 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
