Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 2 November 2066 at 02:13.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2066 after 25 days on 1 December 2066 at 19:16.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 826 of Meeus index or 1779 from Brown series.
Length of current 826 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 23 minutes. It is 11 minutes longer than next lunation 827 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 48 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠304.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠328.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
14 days after point of perigee on 22 October 2066 at 18:37 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 November 2066 at 14:36 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 405 165 km (251 758 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 915 km (251 603 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 05:30 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 19 November 2066 at 21:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 5 November 2066 at 05:38 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.974°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.944° in the next southern standstill on 19 November 2066 at 02:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 11 days on 17 November 2066 at 13:06 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
