Crescent ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 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 about ∠19° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2076 after 17 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 27 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 17:20, this is 15 days after last apogee on 17 February 2076 at 01:30 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 15 March 2076 at 16:37 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 360 806 km (224 194 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 702 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 550 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 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 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 March 2076 at 06:34 in ♋ Cancer.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 29 February 2076 at 23:45 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.705°. Next 10 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 1 day 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.
