Moon* ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 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.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2066 after 1 day 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 13 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 03:18, this is 15 days after last apogee on 19 July 2066 at 16:13 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 16 August 2066 at 05:19 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 360 710 km (224 135 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 798 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 646 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 3 August 2066 at 08:34 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 August 2066 at 21:14 in ♋ Cancer.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 2 August 2066 at 00:55 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.680°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.625° in the next northern standstill on 15 August 2066 at 06:35 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day 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.
