Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 1 April 2075 at 08:45.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

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 930 / 1883

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 930 of Meeus index or 1883 from Brown series.

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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 4 April 2075 at 22:38 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 April 2075 at 18:02 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 363 302 km

Moon is 363 302 km (225 745 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 871 km (251 575 mi).

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 25 March 2075 at 08:07 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.138°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.269° in the next southern standstill on 7 April 2075 at 15:33 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 15 April 2075 at 08:55 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
