Crescent ♌ Leo
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1781" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2066 after 14 days on 5 August 2066 at 16:59.
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.
At 10:34 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 823 of Meeus index or 1776 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 16 minutes is the length of new lunation 823. It is 1 hour and 18 minutes longer than next lunation 824 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 32 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 31 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠207°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠236.4°. 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°).
2 days 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 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 August 2066 at 03:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 402 535 km (250 124 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 710 km (224 135 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 20 July 2066 at 16:05 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 August 2066 at 08:34 in ♑ Capricorn.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 18 July 2066 at 23:31 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.725°. Next 10 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.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
