Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 2 November 2066 at 02:13.

Moonrise and moonset

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 in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1775"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1936".

Beaver Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2066 after 26 days on 1 December 2066 at 19:16.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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.

Lunation 826 / 1779

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 826 of Meeus index or 1779 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.47 days

Length of current 826 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 23 minutes. It is 11 minutes longer than next lunation 827 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠304.7°

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°).

Moon before apogee

13 days after point of perigee on 22 October 2066 at 18:37 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 November 2066 at 14:36 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 403 875 km

Moon is 403 875 km (250 956 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 915 km (251 603 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 23 October 2066 at 16:14 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 6 November 2066 at 05:30 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon in northern standstill

At 05:38 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠23.974°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-23.944° in its southern standstill point on 19 November 2066 at 02:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 17 November 2066 at 13:06 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
