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.
Length of current 830 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 next lunation 831 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 13 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 56 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠18.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠37.6°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 12 February 2067 at 19:54 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 February 2067 at 01:39 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 403 702 km (250 849 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 610 km (252 034 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 01:40 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 9 March 2067 at 05:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 22 February 2067 at 07:51 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.698°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.547° in the next southern standstill on 8 March 2067 at 17:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 5 days on 1 March 2067 at 04:42 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
