Crescent ♑ Capricorn
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 ∠24° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2066 after 12 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 2 days 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 10:44, this is 11 days after last apogee on 7 November 2066 at 14:36 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 5 December 2066 at 07:41 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 362 077 km (224 984 mi) away from Earth. It is 431 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 8 279 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 21:21 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 3 December 2066 at 11:04 in ♊ Gemini.
At 21:21 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
At 02:52 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-23.944°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠23.924° in its northern standstill point on 2 December 2066 at 12:20 in ♊ Gemini.
After 12 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.
