Moon* ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 7 days on 25 December 2074 at 05:07.
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 first ∠1° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2075 after 1 day on 2 January 2075 at 09:39.
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 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 927 of Meeus index or 1880 from Brown series.
Length of current 927 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 17 minutes. It is 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 928 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 42 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠24.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
1 day after point of apogee on 30 December 2074 at 16:12 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 January 2075 at 07:21 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 404 577 km (251 392 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 371 km (223 924 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 20 December 2074 at 02:32 in ♑ Capricorn, 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 3 January 2075 at 08:42 in ♋ Cancer.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
13 days after previous South standstill on 19 December 2074 at 07:43 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.818°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.829° in the next northern standstill on 2 January 2075 at 09:48 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 2 January 2075 at 09:39 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
