Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 23 April 2075 at 11:53.
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 ∠11° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1841" and ∠1906".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2075 after 4 days on 30 April 2075 at 18:37.
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.
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 931 of Meeus index or 1884 from Brown series.
Length of current 931 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 27 minutes. It is 50 minutes shorter than next lunation 932 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 43 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 20 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠113.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠145.4°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 20 April 2075 at 18:02 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 May 2075 at 16:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 389 418 km (241 973 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 942 km (224 900 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 22 April 2075 at 03:55 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 5 May 2075 at 05:59 in ♑ Capricorn.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 21 April 2075 at 16:04 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.404°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.503° in the next southern standstill on 4 May 2075 at 22:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 4 days on 30 April 2075 at 18:37 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
