Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 11 September 2066 at 14:16.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1907".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2066 after 21 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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 apogee on this date at 22:49, this is 11 days after last perigee on 1 September 2066 at 01:49 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 27 September 2066 at 12:48 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 404 308 km (251 225 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 100 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 401 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
12 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 September 2066 at 00:19 in ♋ Cancer.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 11 September 2066 at 14:21 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.408°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.274° in the next southern standstill on 25 September 2066 at 13:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 7 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.
