Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 14 May 2075 at 23:22.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1773"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1897".

Flower Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2075 after 13 days on 30 May 2075 at 02:38.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 23 May 2075 at 03:57
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 30 May 2075 at 02:38
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 5 June 2075 at 18:00
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 13 June 2075 at 14:39

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 932 / 1885

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 932 of Meeus index or 1885 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 932 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 17 minutes. It is 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 933 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 33 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 30 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠145.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠145.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠170.5°. 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

13 days after point of perigee on 2 May 2075 at 16:21 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 May 2075 at 08:43 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 404 345 km

Moon is 404 345 km (251 248 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 811 km (252 159 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 5 May 2075 at 05:59 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 19 May 2075 at 06:26 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

24 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

11 days after previous South standstill on 4 May 2075 at 22:18 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.503°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.600° in the next northern standstill on 18 May 2075 at 23:38 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 30 May 2075 at 02:38 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
