Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 31 August 2067 at 14:04.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2067 after 17 days on 23 September 2067 at 00:54.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 23:25, this is 12 days after last perigee on 24 August 2067 at 03:23 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 21 September 2067 at 11:31 in ♓ Pisces.
This apogee Moon is 406 157 km (252 374 mi) away from Earth. It is 749 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 552 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days after its descending node on 1 September 2067 at 06:54 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 September 2067 at 19:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 1 September 2067 at 09:55 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.778°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.627° in the next southern standstill on 16 September 2067 at 01:16 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 3 days on 8 September 2067 at 18:09 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
