Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

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 leaving the last ∠4° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♊ Gemini later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1780"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1780" and ∠1926".

Pink Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2075 after 10 days on 1 April 2075 at 08:45.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Gemini ♊ on 24 March 2075 at 16:45
  • Full Moon in Libra ♎ on 1 April 2075 at 08:45
  • Last Quarter in Capricorn ♑ on 8 April 2075 at 03:03
  • New Moon in Aries ♈ on 15 April 2075 at 08:55

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 930 / 1883

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 930 of Meeus index or 1883 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.56 days

Length of current 930 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 31 minutes. It is 56 minutes shorter than next lunation 931 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 46 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 16 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠76.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠76.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠113.2°. 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

10 days after point of perigee on 10 March 2075 at 13:32 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 March 2075 at 23:11 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 402 649 km

Moon is 402 649 km (250 194 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 257 km (251 194 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 12 March 2075 at 03:46 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 March 2075 at 01:58 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

22 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

10 days after previous South standstill on 11 March 2075 at 10:20 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.019°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.138° in the next northern standstill on 25 March 2075 at 08:07 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 1 April 2075 at 08:45 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
