Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 8 January 2067 at 17:01.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2067 after 16 days on 30 January 2067 at 10:29.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
11 days 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 January 2067 at 07:56 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 365 054 km (226 834 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 756 km (221 678 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 18:46 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 26 January 2067 at 22:59 in ♊ Gemini.
At 18:46 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
At 00:58 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-23.918°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2067. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠23.887° in its northern standstill point on 26 January 2067 at 00:50 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day 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.
