Gibbous ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 11 February 2076 at 18:35.
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 first ∠1° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2076 after 2 days on 19 February 2076 at 23:49.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 941 of Meeus index or 1894 from Brown series.
Length of current 941 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 23 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2076. It is longer than next lunation 942 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 21 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 48 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 01:30, this is 12 days after last perigee on 4 February 2076 at 07:52 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 3 March 2076 at 17:20 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 406 053 km (252 310 mi) away from Earth. It is 645 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 656 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
2 days after its ascending node on 15 February 2076 at 04:47 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 February 2076 at 09:23 in ♑ Capricorn.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 15 February 2076 at 19:53 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.589°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.705° in the next southern standstill on 29 February 2076 at 23:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 days on 19 February 2076 at 23:49 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
