Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2075 after 21 days on 23 October 2075 at 22:49.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Synodic month length 29.53 days

Length of current 936 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 41 minutes. It is 49 minutes longer than next lunation 937 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠251.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠251.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠287.7°. 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 14:34, this is 12 days after last perigee on 20 September 2075 at 11:42 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 15 October 2075 at 14:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 404 168 km

This apogee Moon is 404 168 km (251 138 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest apogee of 2075. It is 1 240 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 117 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 05:26 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 15 October 2075 at 20:11 in ♑ Capricorn.

New draconic month

At 05:26 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon in northern standstill

At 08:38 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠23.070°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-23.206° in its southern standstill point on 16 October 2075 at 01:17 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 7 days

After 7 days on 9 October 2075 at 23:43 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
