Crescent ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 24 February 2066 at 08:50.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1799" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2066 after 11 days on 11 March 2066 at 22:48.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 818 of Meeus index or 1771 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 23 minutes. It is 53 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 39 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 24 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠61.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠96.6°.
8 days after point of perigee on 20 February 2066 at 01:15 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 4 March 2066 at 06:48 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 398 469 km (247 597 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 251 km (251 190 mi).
7 days after ascending node on 20 February 2066 at 21:32 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 6 March 2066 at 20:17 in ♋ Cancer.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 days 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 4 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 11 days on 11 March 2066 at 22:48 in ♍ Virgo the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
