Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 16 September 2067 at 10:20.
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 ∠7° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1912".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2067 after 1 day on 23 September 2067 at 00:54.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 11:31, this is 15 days after last apogee on 5 September 2067 at 23:25 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 3 October 2067 at 12:21 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 360 582 km (224 055 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 926 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 774 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
5 days after its ascending node on 15 September 2067 at 19:19 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 28 September 2067 at 09:08 in ♊ Gemini.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 16 September 2067 at 01:16 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.627°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.519° in the next northern standstill on 28 September 2067 at 17:33 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day 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.
