Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 22 February 2075 at 20:00.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1778" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2075 after 4 days on 2 March 2075 at 20:06.
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.
The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 929 of Meeus index or 1882 from Brown series.
Length of current 929 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes. It is 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 930 length.
Length of current synodic month is equal to the mean length of synodic month. It is 6 hours and 9 minutes longer than the 21st century shortest and 7 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the 21st century longest synodic month.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76.5°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 24 February 2075 at 02:31 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 March 2075 at 13:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 403 045 km (250 441 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 071 km (229 951 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 22:09 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 12 March 2075 at 03:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 22:09 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
At 00:14 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠21.916°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-22.019° in its southern standstill point on 11 March 2075 at 10:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 4 days on 2 March 2075 at 20:06 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
