Gibbous ♎ Libra
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 55% and growing larger. The 8 days young Moon is in ♎ Libra.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 20 June 2067 at 00:28 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1813" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2067 after 6 days on 27 June 2067 at 02:52.
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 834 of Meeus index or 1787 from Brown series.
Length of current 834 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 35 minutes. It is 45 minutes shorter than next lunation 835 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 51 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 12 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠132.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠159.9°. 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 16 June 2067 at 03:04 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 June 2067 at 09:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 395 366 km (245 669 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 568 km (223 425 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 11 June 2067 at 19:56 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 June 2067 at 02:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous North standstill on 11 June 2067 at 14:57 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.109°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.109° in the next southern standstill on 25 June 2067 at 22:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 6 days on 27 June 2067 at 02:52 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
