Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 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 about ∠8° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2067 after 2 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 12 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 25 February 2067 at 01:39 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 March 2067 at 00:40 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 404 961 km (251 631 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 617 km (225 941 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 23 February 2067 at 01:40 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 March 2067 at 05:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 22 February 2067 at 07:51 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.698°. Next 10 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 2 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.
