Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 14 July 2066 at 06:38.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2066 after 17 days on 5 August 2066 at 16:59.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 apogee on this date at 16:13, this is 12 days after last perigee on 6 July 2066 at 20:02 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 4 August 2066 at 03:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 406 051 km (252 308 mi) away from Earth. It is 643 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 658 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
12 days after its ascending node on 6 July 2066 at 22:56 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 20 July 2066 at 16:05 in ♋ Cancer.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 18 July 2066 at 23:31 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.725°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.680° in the next southern standstill on 2 August 2066 at 00:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 2 days on 22 July 2066 at 10:34 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
