Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 31 December 2066 at 14:41.
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 ∠3° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2067 after 27 days on 30 January 2067 at 10:29.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 828 of Meeus index or 1781 from Brown series.
Length of current 828 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 59 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2067. It is 19 minutes longer than next lunation 829 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 45 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 24 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠346.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠2.4°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 1 January 2067 at 14:49 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 January 2067 at 07:56 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 404 957 km (251 629 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 756 km (221 678 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 30 December 2066 at 17:42 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 January 2067 at 18:46 in ♐ Sagittarius.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 29 December 2066 at 18:32 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.938°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.918° in the next southern standstill on 13 January 2067 at 00:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 days on 15 January 2067 at 11:17 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
