Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 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 about ∠14° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.9% 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 3 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 12 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 7 January 2066 at 15:46 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 15 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 January 2066 at 15:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 405 423 km (251 918 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 15 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 177 km (225 668 mi).
11 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 January 2066 at 07:55 in ♋ Cancer.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 23:20 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠25.491°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2066. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-25.483° in its southern standstill point on 22 January 2066 at 16:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 3 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.
