Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 73% and growing larger. The 9 days young Moon is in ♋ Cancer.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 20 February 2067 at 23:30.
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 first ∠3° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2067 after 5 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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 830 of Meeus index or 1783 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 31 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2067. It is 24 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 13 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 56 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠18.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠37.6°.
10 days after point of perigee on 12 February 2067 at 19:54 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 25 February 2067 at 01:39 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 403 702 km (250 849 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 610 km (252 034 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 01:40 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 9 March 2067 at 05:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 22 February 2067 at 07:51 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.698°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.547° at the point of next southern standstill on 8 March 2067 at 17:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 5 days on 1 March 2067 at 04:42 in ♍ Virgo the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
