Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 22 January 2067 at 06:17.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2067 after 1 day 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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 829 of Meeus index or 1782 from Brown series.
Length of current 829 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 40 minutes. It is 9 minutes longer than next lunation 830 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠2.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠18.4°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 14:45, this is 13 days after last perigee on 15 January 2067 at 07:56 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 12 February 2067 at 19:54 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 406 278 km (252 449 mi) away from Earth. It is 870 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 431 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after its descending node on 26 January 2067 at 22:59 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 10 February 2067 at 02:51 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.
2 days after previous North standstill on 26 January 2067 at 00:50 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.887°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.790° in the next southern standstill on 9 February 2067 at 10:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 30 January 2067 at 10:29 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
