Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 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 ∠12° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1805" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2075 after 2 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 12 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°).
4 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 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 March 2075 at 13:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 397 045 km (246 712 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 071 km (229 951 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 26 February 2075 at 22:09 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 March 2075 at 03:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 26 February 2075 at 00:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.916°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.019° in the next southern standstill on 11 March 2075 at 10:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 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.
