Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 8 September 2067 at 18:09.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1842" and ∠1907".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2067 after 10 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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 837 of Meeus index or 1790 from Brown series.
Length of current 837 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 19 minutes. It is 33 minutes longer than next lunation 838 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 35 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 28 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠207.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠237.7°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 5 September 2067 at 23:25 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 September 2067 at 11:31 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 389 156 km (241 810 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 582 km (224 055 mi).
11 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 September 2067 at 19:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.

11 days after previous North standstill on 1 September 2067 at 09:55 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.778°. Next 3 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 10 days on 23 September 2067 at 00:54 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
