Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 8 October 2067 at 09:28.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1900" and ∠1923".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2067 after 9 days on 22 October 2067 at 10:56.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 838 of Meeus index or 1791 from Brown series.
Length of current 838 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 46 minutes. It is 55 minutes longer than next lunation 839 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 2 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 1 minute shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠237.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠274.8°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 3 October 2067 at 12:21 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 October 2067 at 10:41 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 377 275 km (234 428 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 700 km (227 235 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 20:11 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 25 October 2067 at 14:38 in ♊ Gemini.
At 20:11 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
13 days after previous North standstill on 28 September 2067 at 17:33 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.519°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.403° in the next southern standstill on 13 October 2067 at 06:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 9 days on 22 October 2067 at 10:56 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
