Quarter* ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 19 September 2066 at 13:47.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2066 after 8 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 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 825 of Meeus index or 1778 from Brown series.
Length of current 825 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 55 minutes. It is 32 minutes longer than next lunation 826 length.
Length of current synodic month is 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 20 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠272.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠304.7°. 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°).
12 days after point of apogee on 12 September 2066 at 22:49 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 September 2066 at 12:48 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 364 461 km (226 466 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 827 km (229 800 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 13 September 2066 at 00:19 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 September 2066 at 15:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 13:22 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-24.274°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠24.153° in its northern standstill point on 8 October 2066 at 22:14 in ♊ Gemini.
After 8 days on 3 October 2066 at 12:25 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
