Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 28 May 2067 at 18:42.
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 ∠17° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2067 after 26 days on 27 June 2067 at 02:52.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:21, this is 11 days after last apogee on 19 May 2067 at 10:35 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 16 June 2067 at 03:04 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 364 053 km (226 212 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 545 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 303 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 29 May 2067 at 16:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 June 2067 at 19:56 in ♊ Gemini.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 29 May 2067 at 12:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.107°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.109° in the next northern standstill on 11 June 2067 at 14:57 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 days on 11 June 2067 at 20:41 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
