Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 18 August 2067 at 01:09.
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 ∠15° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1922" and ∠1896".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2067 after 5 days on 24 August 2067 at 16:57.
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 836 of Meeus index or 1789 from Brown series.
Length of current 836 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 32 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2067. It is 13 minutes longer than next lunation 837 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 48 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 15 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠183°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠207.1°. 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 9 August 2067 at 18:29 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 24 August 2067 at 03:23 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 372 869 km (231 690 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 474 km (222 124 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 17:42 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 1 September 2067 at 06:54 in ♊ Gemini.
At 17:42 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
At 18:29 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-22.875°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠22.778° in its northern standstill point on 1 September 2067 at 09:55 in ♊ Gemini.
After 5 days on 24 August 2067 at 16:57 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
