Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 17 February 2066 at 12:14.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2066 after 20 days on 11 March 2066 at 22:48.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 817 of Meeus index or 1770 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 36 minutes. It is 47 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 8 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 1 minute longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠35.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠61.6°.
15 days after point of apogee on 4 February 2066 at 09:58 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 20 February 2066 at 01:15 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 363 781 km (226 043 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 665 km (229 078 mi).
11 days after descending node on 7 February 2066 at 15:03 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 20 February 2066 at 21:32 in ♑ Capricorn.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 18 February 2066 at 23:33 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.369°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.268° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 March 2066 at 15:15 in ♊ Gemini.
In 4 days on 24 February 2066 at 08:50 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
