Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 13 December 2067 at 08:38.
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 ∠14° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1842" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2067 after 1 day on 20 December 2067 at 15:41.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 17 December 2067 at 18:55 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 December 2067 at 23:56 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 389 062 km (241 752 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 164 km (251 757 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 07:06 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 2 January 2068 at 18:49 in ♐ Sagittarius.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
At 19:23 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠22.286°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-22.264° in its southern standstill point on 3 January 2068 at 06:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day 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.
