Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 28 November 2067 at 22:06.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1851" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2067 after 16 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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 28 November 2067 at 03:30 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 December 2067 at 00:36 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 387 157 km (240 568 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 040 km (228 068 mi).
12 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 December 2067 at 08:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.

12 days after previous North standstill on 22 November 2067 at 11:11 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.275°. Next 2 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 2 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.
