Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 29 April 2067 at 08:40.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2067 after 23 days on 28 May 2067 at 18:42.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 832 of Meeus index or 1785 from Brown series.
Length of current 832 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 57 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes shorter than next lunation 833 length.
Length of current synodic month is 47 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 22 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠63.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠98.3°. 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 perigee on 4 May 2067 at 04:17 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 May 2067 at 10:35 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 363 305 km (225 747 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 564 km (251 384 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 2 May 2067 at 08:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 15 May 2067 at 12:44 in ♊ Gemini.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 2 May 2067 at 04:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.143°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.108° in the next northern standstill on 15 May 2067 at 07:53 in ♊ Gemini.
After 7 days on 13 May 2067 at 07:20 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
