Crescent ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 17 April 2066 at 02:23.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1907" and ∠1910".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2066 after 20 days on 9 May 2066 at 18:58.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 819 of Meeus index or 1772 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 16 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 1 hour and 32 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 31 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠96.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠132.1°.
6 days after point of perigee on 12 April 2066 at 22:32 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 28 April 2066 at 19:52 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 375 897 km (233 572 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 408 km (251 909 mi).
3 days after ascending node on 16 April 2066 at 00:07 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 30 April 2066 at 00:48 in ♋ Cancer.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 14 April 2066 at 10:46 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.901°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.799° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 April 2066 at 05:54 in ♊ Gemini.
In 5 days on 24 April 2066 at 12:29 in ♉ Taurus 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.
