Crescent ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 22 July 2066 at 10:34.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1793" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2066 after 13 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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 823 of Meeus index or 1776 from Brown series.
Length of current 823 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 16 minutes. 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°).
3 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 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 August 2066 at 03:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 399 825 km (248 440 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 710 km (224 135 mi).
2 days 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 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 August 2066 at 08:34 in ♑ Capricorn.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 18 July 2066 at 23:31 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.725°. Next 9 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 13 days on 5 August 2066 at 16:59 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
