Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 3 October 2066 at 12:25.
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 ∠24° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1845" and ∠1919".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2066 after 28 days on 2 November 2066 at 02:13.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
6 days after point of perigee on 27 September 2066 at 12:48 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 October 2066 at 18:32 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 388 469 km (241 383 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 214 km (251 167 mi).
7 days after its ascending node on 26 September 2066 at 15:21 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 October 2066 at 02:19 in ♋ Cancer.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 25 September 2066 at 13:22 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.274°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.153° in the next northern standstill on 8 October 2066 at 22:14 in ♊ Gemini.
After 14 days on 19 October 2066 at 01:42 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
