Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 8 February 2075 at 12:41.

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.

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 928 / 1881

The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:55, this is 16 days after last apogee on 27 January 2075 at 06:37 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 24 February 2075 at 02:31 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 365 747 km

This perigee Moon is 365 747 km (227 265 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 239 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 609 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 23:10 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 26 February 2075 at 22:09 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon in southern standstill

At 04:13 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-21.860°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠21.916° in its northern standstill point on 26 February 2075 at 00:14 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 15 February 2075 at 06:40 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
