Quarter* ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 4 September 2066 at 01:37.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1782" and ∠1906".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2066 after 23 days on 3 October 2066 at 12:25.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 1 September 2066 at 01:49 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 September 2066 at 22:49 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 402 217 km (249 926 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 308 km (251 225 mi).
10 days 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 September 2066 at 00:19 in ♋ Cancer.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 29 August 2066 at 07:59 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.516°. Next day 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 9 days on 19 September 2066 at 13:47 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
