Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 15 February 2075 at 06:40.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1798"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1798" and ∠1940".

Worm Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2075 after 10 days on 2 March 2075 at 20:06.

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 929 / 1882

The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 929 of Meeus index or 1882 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.53 days

Length of current 929 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes. It is 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 930 length.

Lunation length same as the mean

Length of current synodic month is equal to the mean length of synodic month. It is 6 hours and 9 minutes longer than the 21st century shortest and 7 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the 21st century longest synodic month.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠46.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76.5°. 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 before apogee

8 days after point of perigee on 12 February 2075 at 07:55 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 February 2075 at 02:31 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 398 653 km

Moon is 398 653 km (247 711 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 450 km (251 314 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 12 February 2075 at 23:10 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 February 2075 at 22:09 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

20 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

8 days after previous South standstill on 12 February 2075 at 04:13 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.860°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.916° in the next northern standstill on 26 February 2075 at 00:14 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 2 March 2075 at 20:06 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
