Quarter* ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 19 September 2066 at 13:47.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2066 after 8 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 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 825 of Meeus index or 1778 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 55 minutes. It is 32 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 49 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 20 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠272.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠304.7°.
12 days after point of apogee on 12 September 2066 at 22:49 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 27 September 2066 at 12:48 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 364 461 km (226 466 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 827 km (229 800 mi).
12 days after descending node on 13 September 2066 at 00:19 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 26 September 2066 at 15:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 13:22 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-24.274°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠24.153° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 8 October 2066 at 22:14.
In 8 days on 3 October 2066 at 12:25 in ♈ Aries 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.
