Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 10 January 2075 at 03:14.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1966"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1951".

Snow Moon after 16 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2075 after 16 days on 1 February 2075 at 04:13.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 927 / 1880

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:21, this is 15 days after last apogee on 30 December 2074 at 16:12 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 27 January 2075 at 06:37 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 360 371 km

This perigee Moon is 360 371 km (223 924 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 137 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 985 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

12 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 January 2075 at 13:41 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

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

Moon in southern standstill

At 19:15 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-21.820°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2075. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠21.824° in its northern standstill point on 29 January 2075 at 16:46 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day 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.
