Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 7 February 2067 at 06:14.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1956" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2067 after 19 days on 1 March 2067 at 04:42.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 28 January 2067 at 14:45 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 February 2067 at 19:54 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 366 523 km (227 747 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 905 km (223 013 mi).
13 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 February 2067 at 02:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 10:40 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-23.790°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠23.698° in its northern standstill point on 22 February 2067 at 07:51 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 days on 13 February 2067 at 21:57 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
