Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 2 November 2066 at 02:13.
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 ∠16° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2066 after 24 days on 1 December 2066 at 19:16.
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 19 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.
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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 14:36, this is 15 days after last perigee on 22 October 2066 at 18:37 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 19 November 2066 at 10:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This apogee Moon is 404 915 km (251 603 mi) away from Earth. It is 493 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 794 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after its descending node on 6 November 2066 at 05:30 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 November 2066 at 21:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 5 November 2066 at 05:38 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.974°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.944° in the next southern standstill on 19 November 2066 at 02:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 10 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.
