Gibbous ♋ Cancer
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 57% and growing larger. The 8 days young Moon is in ♋ Cancer.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 22 March 2067 at 18:44 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1925".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2067 after 7 days on 30 March 2067 at 20:08.
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 8 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 831 of Meeus index or 1784 from Brown series.
Length of current 831 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes shorter than next lunation 832 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 20 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠37.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠63.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
10 days after point of perigee on 13 March 2067 at 00:40 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 24 March 2067 at 19:49 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 404 355 km (251 255 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 668 km (251 449 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 22 March 2067 at 03:17 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 April 2067 at 05:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.
14 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 21 March 2067 at 15:43 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.428°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.296° in the next southern standstill on 4 April 2067 at 22:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 7 days on 30 March 2067 at 20:08 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
