Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 2 January 2075 at 09:39.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon is entering ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1845"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1845" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2075 after 25 days on 1 February 2075 at 04:13.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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.

Lunation 927 / 1880

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 927 of Meeus index or 1880 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.47 days

Length of current 927 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 17 minutes. It is 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 928 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠7.7°

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°).

Moon after apogee

6 days 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 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 January 2075 at 07:21 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 388 416 km

Moon is 388 416 km (241 351 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 371 km (223 924 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after its ascending node on 3 January 2075 at 08:42 in ♋ Cancer, 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 16 January 2075 at 13:41 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 2 January 2075 at 09:48 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.829°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.820° in the next southern standstill on 15 January 2075 at 19:15 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 16 January 2075 at 18:37 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
