Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 21 July 2075 at 01:55.
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 ∠17° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2075 after 1 day on 27 July 2075 at 16:54.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 934 of Meeus index or 1887 from Brown series.
Length of current 934 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 59 minutes. It is 1 hour and 7 minutes longer than next lunation 935 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 15 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 48 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠193.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠218.9°. 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 is reaching point of perigee on this date at 17:26, this is 14 days after last apogee on 11 July 2075 at 19:15 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 8 August 2075 at 04:19 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 358 712 km (222 893 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 796 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 644 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 08:37 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 8 August 2075 at 23:02 in ♋ Cancer.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 05:07 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-22.675°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠22.688° in its northern standstill point on 8 August 2075 at 18:41 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 27 July 2075 at 16:54 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
