Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 1 April 2075 at 08:45.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1944" and ∠1919".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2075 after 27 days on 30 April 2075 at 18:37.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 930 of Meeus index or 1883 from Brown series.
Length of current 930 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 31 minutes. It is 56 minutes shorter than next lunation 931 length.
Length of current synodic month is 46 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 16 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠76.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠113.2°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 23 March 2075 at 23:11 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 April 2075 at 22:38 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 368 684 km (229 090 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 126 km (228 122 mi).
8 days after its ascending node on 26 March 2075 at 01:58 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 April 2075 at 04:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 25 March 2075 at 08:07 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.138°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.269° in the next southern standstill on 7 April 2075 at 15:33 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 11 days on 15 April 2075 at 08:55 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
