Crescent ♍ Virgo
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1818" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2066 after 13 days on 4 September 2066 at 01:37.
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 00:50 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 824 of Meeus index or 1777 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 58 minutes is the length of new lunation 824. It is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than next lunation 825 length.
Length of current synodic month is 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 49 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠236.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠272.1°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 16 August 2066 at 05:19 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 September 2066 at 01:49 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 394 259 km (244 981 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 541 km (227 137 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 16 August 2066 at 21:14 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 August 2066 at 14:05 in ♐ Sagittarius.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 15 August 2066 at 06:35 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.625°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.516° in the next southern standstill on 29 August 2066 at 07:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
