Moon* ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 30 June 2066 at 17:59.
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 ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2066 after 1 day on 7 July 2066 at 09:34.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 822 of Meeus index or 1775 from Brown series.
Length of current 822 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 19 minutes. It is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than next lunation 823 length.
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.
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 is reaching point of perigee on this date at 20:02, this is 14 days after last apogee on 22 June 2066 at 10:28 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 19 July 2066 at 16:13 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 357 676 km (222 250 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 832 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 680 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♑ Capricorn at 22:56 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 20 July 2066 at 16:05 in ♋ Cancer.
At 22:56 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
1 day after previous South standstill on 5 July 2066 at 15:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.732°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.725° in the next northern standstill on 18 July 2066 at 23:31 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 7 July 2066 at 09:34 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
