Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 22 March 2067 at 18:44.
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 ∠23° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1924".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2067 after 6 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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 831 of Meeus index or 1784 from Brown series.
Length of current 831 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes shorter than next lunation 832 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 20 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠37.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠63.8°. 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 apogee on this date at 19:49, this is 11 days after last perigee on 13 March 2067 at 00:40 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 9 April 2067 at 05:49 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 404 668 km (251 449 mi) away from Earth. It is 740 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 041 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
2 days after its descending node on 22 March 2067 at 03:17 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 April 2067 at 05:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 21 March 2067 at 15:43 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.428°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.296° in the next southern standstill on 4 April 2067 at 22:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 6 days on 30 March 2067 at 20:08 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
