Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 23 January 2075 at 23:32.

Moonrise and moonset

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 in ♊ Gemini

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1948".

Snow Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2075 after 3 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 928 / 1881

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 928 of Meeus index or 1881 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.5 days

Length of current 928 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 4 minutes. It is 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 929 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 40 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 29 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠24.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠24.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠46.3°. 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

1 day after point of apogee on 27 January 2075 at 06:37 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 February 2075 at 07:55 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 151 km

Moon is 405 151 km (251 749 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 747 km (227 265 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 16 January 2075 at 13:41 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 January 2075 at 15:45 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 15 January 2075 at 19:15 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.820°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.824° in the next northern standstill on 29 January 2075 at 16:46 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 1 February 2075 at 04:13 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
