Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 8 March 2067 at 16:16.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1959" and ∠1930".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2067 after 17 days on 30 March 2067 at 20:08.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 00:40, this is 15 days after last apogee on 25 February 2067 at 01:39 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 24 March 2067 at 19:49 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 363 617 km (225 941 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 109 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 739 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
4 days after its ascending node on 9 March 2067 at 05:33 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 March 2067 at 03:17 in ♊ Gemini.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 8 March 2067 at 17:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.547°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.428° in the next northern standstill on 21 March 2067 at 15:43 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 15 March 2067 at 08:29 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
