Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 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 first ∠4° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1925".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2075 after 8 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 6 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 14:24, this is 12 days after last apogee on 2 October 2075 at 14:34 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 30 October 2075 at 10:53 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 369 756 km (229 756 mi) away from Earth. It is 7 248 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 600 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 20:11 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 29 October 2075 at 07:44 in ♋ Cancer.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
13 days after previous North standstill on 2 October 2075 at 08:38 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.070°. Next day 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 8 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.
