Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 19 July 2067 at 13:59.
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 ∠20° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1935" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2067 after 2 days on 26 July 2067 at 09:58.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 835 of Meeus index or 1788 from Brown series.
Length of current 835 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 20 minutes. It is 12 minutes shorter than next lunation 836 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠159.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠183°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
9 days after point of apogee on 13 July 2067 at 14:29 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 26 July 2067 at 17:23 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 370 510 km (230 224 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 147 km (221 921 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 12:01 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 5 August 2067 at 05:26 in ♊ Gemini.
At 12:01 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
At 09:15 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-23.048°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠22.998° in its northern standstill point on 5 August 2067 at 03:19 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 days on 26 July 2067 at 09:58 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
