Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 28 August 2066 at 08:25.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2066 after 2 days on 4 September 2066 at 01:37.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 824 of Meeus index or 1777 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 58 minutes. It is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 13 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 49 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠236.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠272.1°.
Moon is at perigee at 01:49. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 16 August 2066 at 05:19 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 12 September 2066 at 22:49 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 365 541 km (227 137 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 033 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 815 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after ascending node on 30 August 2066 at 14:05 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 13 September 2066 at 00:19 in ♋ Cancer.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 29 August 2066 at 07:59 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.516°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.408° at the point of next northern standstill on 11 September 2066 at 14:21 in ♊ Gemini.
In 2 days on 4 September 2066 at 01:37 in ♓ Pisces 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.
