Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 9 October 2075 at 23:43.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1929" and ∠1923".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2075 after 11 days on 23 October 2075 at 22:49.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 937 of Meeus index or 1890 from Brown series.
Length of current 937 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 52 minutes. It is 24 minutes longer than next lunation 938 length.
Length of current synodic month is 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠287.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠316.5°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 2 October 2075 at 14:34 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 October 2075 at 14:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 371 660 km (230 939 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 756 km (229 756 mi).
10 days after its ascending node on 2 October 2075 at 05:26 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 15 October 2075 at 20:11 in ♑ Capricorn.

10 days after previous North standstill on 2 October 2075 at 08:38 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.070°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.206° in the next southern standstill on 16 October 2075 at 01:17 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 11 days on 23 October 2075 at 22:49 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
