Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 1 December 2066 at 19:16.
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 first ∠0° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2066 after 28 days on 31 December 2066 at 14:41.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
14 days after point of perigee on 19 November 2066 at 10:44 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 December 2066 at 07:41 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 404 572 km (251 389 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 855 km (252 187 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 11:04 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 17 December 2066 at 07:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 2 December 2066 at 12:20 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.924°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.934° in the next southern standstill on 16 December 2066 at 13:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 17 December 2066 at 00:17 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
