Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 28 August 2066 at 08:25.
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 ∠6° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2066 after 4 days on 4 September 2066 at 01:37.
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 824 of Meeus index or 1777 from Brown series.
Length of current 824 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 58 minutes. 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°).
14 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 September 2066 at 01:49 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 363 300 km (225 744 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 541 km (227 137 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 14:05 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 13 September 2066 at 00:19 in ♋ Cancer.
At 14:05 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
1 day after previous South standstill on 29 August 2066 at 07:59 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.516°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.408° in the next northern standstill on 11 September 2066 at 14:21 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 days on 4 September 2066 at 01:37 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
