Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 27 February 2076 at 15:54.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2076 after 20 days on 20 March 2076 at 16:37.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
12 days after point of apogee on 17 February 2076 at 01:30 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 3 March 2076 at 17:20 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 365 436 km (227 071 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 806 km (224 194 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 09:23 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 13 March 2076 at 06:34 in ♋ Cancer.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 23:45 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-23.705°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠23.806° in its northern standstill point on 14 March 2076 at 02:15 in ♋ Cancer.
After 4 days on 5 March 2076 at 07:24 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
