Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 17 November 2066 at 13:06.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1954" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2066 after 13 days on 1 December 2066 at 19:16.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 827 of Meeus index or 1780 from Brown series.
Length of current 827 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 12 minutes. It is 13 minutes longer than next lunation 828 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠328.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠346.7°. 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 7 November 2066 at 14:36 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 19 November 2066 at 10:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 366 787 km (227 911 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 077 km (224 984 mi).
12 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 November 2066 at 21:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
13 days after previous North standstill on 5 November 2066 at 05:38 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.974°. Next day 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 13 days on 1 December 2066 at 19:16 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
