Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 3 January 2066 at 09:56.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2066 after 4 days on 11 January 2066 at 15:07.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 816 of Meeus index or 1769 from Brown series.
Length of current 816 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 47 minutes. It is 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 817 length.
Length of current synodic month is 57 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 12 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠16.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠35.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 15:46, this is 27 days after last perigee on 11 December 2065 at 06:28 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 23 January 2066 at 15:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This apogee Moon is 405 716 km (252 100 mi) away from Earth. It is 308 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 993 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
10 days after its ascending node on 28 December 2065 at 03:31 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 January 2066 at 07:55 in ♋ Cancer.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 26 December 2065 at 06:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.485°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.491° in the next northern standstill on 8 January 2066 at 23:20 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 days on 11 January 2066 at 15:07 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
