Moon phase on 20 December 2067 Tuesday is Full Moon, 14 days old Moon is in Gemini.Share this page: twitter facebook linkedin
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1822" and ∠1950".
The Full Moon this days is the Cold of December 2067.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
2 days 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 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 December 2067 at 23:56 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 393 487 km (244 501 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 164 km (251 757 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 19 December 2067 at 07:06 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 January 2068 at 18:49 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 19 December 2067 at 19:23 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.286°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.264° in the next southern standstill on 3 January 2068 at 06:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
