Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 19 October 2066 at 01:42.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1947" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2066 after 11 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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 826 of Meeus index or 1779 from Brown series.
Length of current 826 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 23 minutes. It is 11 minutes longer than next lunation 827 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 48 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠304.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠328.7°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 10 October 2066 at 18:32 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 22 October 2066 at 18:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 368 062 km (228 703 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 509 km (228 360 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 10 October 2066 at 02:19 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 October 2066 at 16:14 in ♐ Sagittarius.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 8 October 2066 at 22:14 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.153°. Next day 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 11 days on 2 November 2066 at 02:13 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
