Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 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 ∠7° of ♋ Cancer 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 16 days on 5 August 2066 at 16:59.
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 27 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 19 July 2066 at 16:13 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 August 2066 at 03:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 405 372 km (251 886 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 710 km (224 135 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 16:05 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 3 August 2066 at 08:34 in ♑ Capricorn.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last 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 12 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 1 day 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.
