Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 14 November 2067 at 01:07.
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 ∠11° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1942" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2067 after 3 days on 20 November 2067 at 23:50.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 839 of Meeus index or 1792 from Brown series.
Length of current 839 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 51 minutes. It is 1 hour and 18 minutes longer than next lunation 840 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 7 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 56 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠274.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠307.7°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 14 November 2067 at 16:11 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 November 2067 at 03:30 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 369 160 km (229 385 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 463 km (251 322 mi).
8 days after its ascending node on 9 November 2067 at 00:25 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 November 2067 at 22:58 in ♊ Gemini.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 9 November 2067 at 11:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.290°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.275° in the next northern standstill on 22 November 2067 at 11:11 in ♊ Gemini.
After 3 days on 20 November 2067 at 23:50 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
