Moon ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 28 December 2067 at 19:10.
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 ∠21° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1908" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2068 after 15 days on 19 January 2068 at 09:45.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 840 of Meeus index or 1793 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 27 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 11 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 58 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠307.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠331.1°.
8 days after point of apogee on 25 December 2067 at 23:56 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 6 January 2068 at 20:29 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 375 728 km (233 467 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 414 km (224 572 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 2 January 2068 at 18:49 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 January 2068 at 11:57 in ♊ Gemini.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 06:48 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-22.264°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2068. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠22.237° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 16 January 2068 at 02:15.
In 1 day on 5 January 2068 at 02:38 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
