Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 22 December 2075 at 08:48.
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 ∠14° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2076 after 28 days on 21 January 2076 at 04:39.
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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 939 of Meeus index or 1892 from Brown series.
Length of current 939 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 11 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2075. It is 24 minutes longer than next lunation 940 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 33 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 36 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠337.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠354°. 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°).
14 days after point of perigee on 9 December 2075 at 07:28 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 December 2075 at 19:52 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 405 088 km (251 710 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 155 km (252 373 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 22 December 2075 at 18:35 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 5 January 2076 at 17:45 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 08:11 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠23.513°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2075. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-23.509° in its southern standstill point on 6 January 2076 at 04:17 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 13 days on 6 January 2076 at 10:14 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
