Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days 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 first ∠4° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2076 after 18 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 26 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°).
14 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 March 2076 at 17:20 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 363 304 km (225 747 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 806 km (224 194 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 29 February 2076 at 09:23 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 March 2076 at 06:34 in ♋ Cancer.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 29 February 2076 at 23:45 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.705°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.806° in the next northern standstill on 14 March 2076 at 02:15 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 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.
