Quarter* ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days 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 ∠8° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2066 after 22 days on 2 November 2066 at 02:13.
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 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 18:32, this is 13 days after last perigee on 27 September 2066 at 12:48 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 22 October 2066 at 18:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This apogee Moon is 404 214 km (251 167 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest apogee of 2066. It is 1 194 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 163 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 02:19 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 23 October 2066 at 16:14 in ♐ Sagittarius.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 8 October 2066 at 22:14 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.153°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.054° in the next southern standstill on 22 October 2066 at 18:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 8 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.
