Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 13 May 2067 at 07:20.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1784" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2067 after 12 days on 28 May 2067 at 18:42.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 833 of Meeus index or 1786 from Brown series.
Length of current 833 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 20 minutes. It is 1 hour and 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 834 length.
Length of current synodic month is 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠98.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠132.6°. 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°).
12 days 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 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 May 2067 at 10:35 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 401 807 km (249 671 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 564 km (251 384 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 15 May 2067 at 12:44 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 May 2067 at 16:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 15 May 2067 at 07:53 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.108°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.107° in the next southern standstill on 29 May 2067 at 12:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 days on 28 May 2067 at 18:42 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
