Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 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 first ∠4° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2067 after 16 days on 1 March 2067 at 04:42.
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 27 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 19:54, this is 15 days after last apogee on 28 January 2067 at 14:45 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 25 February 2067 at 01:39 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 358 905 km (223 013 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 603 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 451 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
2 days after its ascending node on 10 February 2067 at 02:51 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 February 2067 at 01:40 in ♊ Gemini.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 9 February 2067 at 10:40 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.790°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.698° in the next northern standstill on 22 February 2067 at 07:51 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day 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.
