Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 11 September 2066 at 14:16.
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 ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1907".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2066 after 21 days on 3 October 2066 at 12:25.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 apogee at 22:49. It is 11 days after previous perigee on 1 September 2066 at 01:49 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 27 September 2066 at 12:48 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 404 308 km (251 225 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 100 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 401 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
12 days after ascending node on 30 August 2066 at 14:05 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 13 September 2066 at 00:19 in ♋ Cancer.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 11 September 2066 at 14:21 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.408°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠-24.274° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 September 2066 at 13:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 7 days on 19 September 2066 at 13:47 in ♍ Virgo 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.
