Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 2 September 2075 at 08:34.

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.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1903".

Harvest Moon after 19 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2075 after 19 days on 24 September 2075 at 10:31.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 935 / 1888

The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 935 of Meeus index or 1888 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.58 days

Length of current 935 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than next lunation 936 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 55 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠218.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠218.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠251.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 19:44, this is 11 days after last perigee on 23 August 2075 at 22:14 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 20 September 2075 at 11:42 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 404 711 km

This apogee Moon is 404 711 km (251 476 mi) away from Earth. It is 697 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 998 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 22 August 2075 at 16:33 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 September 2075 at 03:09 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

26 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

12 days after previous South standstill on 22 August 2075 at 13:47 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.754°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.823° in the next northern standstill on 5 September 2075 at 01:11 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 10 September 2075 at 11:02 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
