Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 20 November 2067 at 23:50.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1811" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2067 after 27 days on 20 December 2067 at 15:41.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
8 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 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 November 2067 at 03:30 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 395 786 km (245 930 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 463 km (251 322 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 21 November 2067 at 22:58 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 December 2067 at 08:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 22 November 2067 at 11:11 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.275°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.279° in the next southern standstill on 6 December 2067 at 20:06 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 6 December 2067 at 14:05 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
