Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 2 February 2066 at 05:44.
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 ∠11° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2066 after 5 days on 10 February 2066 at 08:29.
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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 817 of Meeus index or 1770 from Brown series.
Length of current 817 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 36 minutes. It is 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 818 length.
Length of current synodic month is 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠35.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠61.6°. 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 09:58, this is 11 days after last perigee on 23 January 2066 at 15:57 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 20 February 2066 at 01:15 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 404 789 km (251 524 mi) away from Earth. It is 619 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 920 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
10 days after its ascending node on 24 January 2066 at 14:22 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 7 February 2066 at 15:03 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 22 January 2066 at 16:31 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.483°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.448° in the next northern standstill on 5 February 2066 at 06:59 in ♊ Gemini.
After 5 days on 10 February 2066 at 08:29 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
