Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 30 July 2066 at 02:01.
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 about ∠11° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2066 after 4 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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
12 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 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 August 2066 at 03:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 364 498 km (226 489 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 710 km (224 135 mi).
11 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 August 2066 at 08:34 in ♑ Capricorn.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
13 days after previous North standstill on 18 July 2066 at 23:31 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.725°. Next day 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 4 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.
