Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1888".

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 822 / 1775

At 19:15 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 822 of Meeus index or 1775 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.64 days

29 days, 15 hours and 19 minutes is the length of new lunation 822. It is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than next lunation 823 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 34 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 28 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠183.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠183.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠207°. 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°).

Moon in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 10:28, this is 14 days after last perigee on 8 June 2066 at 10:06 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 6 July 2066 at 20:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 486 km

This apogee Moon is 406 486 km (252 579 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2066. It is 1 078 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 223 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 9 June 2066 at 12:08 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 June 2066 at 09:49 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 21 June 2066 at 17:22 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.724°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.732° in the next southern standstill on 5 July 2066 at 15:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
