Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days 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.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2076 after 27 days on 21 January 2076 at 04:39.
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 16 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 19:52, this is 15 days after last perigee on 9 December 2075 at 07:28 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 6 January 2076 at 18:38 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 406 155 km (252 373 mi) away from Earth. It is 747 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 554 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
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 12 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.
1 day after previous North standstill on 23 December 2075 at 08:11 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.513°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.509° in the next southern standstill on 6 January 2076 at 04:17 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 12 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.
