Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 6 December 2067 at 14:05.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1942" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2067 after 12 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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 840 of Meeus index or 1793 from Brown series.
Length of current 840 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 27 minutes longer than next lunation 841 length.
Length of current synodic month is 11 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 58 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠307.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠331.1°. 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°).
10 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 December 2067 at 00:36 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 369 184 km (229 400 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 040 km (228 068 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 6 December 2067 at 08:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 December 2067 at 07:06 in ♊ Gemini.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 6 December 2067 at 20:06 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.279°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.286° in the next northern standstill on 19 December 2067 at 19:23 in ♊ Gemini.
After 12 days on 20 December 2067 at 15:41 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
