Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 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 ∠5° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2066 after 2 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 12 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 01:49, this is 15 days after last apogee on 16 August 2066 at 05:19 in ♋ Cancer. 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 12 September 2066 at 22:49 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 365 541 km (227 137 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 033 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 815 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 30 August 2066 at 14:05 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 September 2066 at 00:19 in ♋ Cancer.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 29 August 2066 at 07:59 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.516°. Next 10 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 2 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.
