Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 12 March 2076 at 12:41.
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 about ∠16° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1929".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2076 after 6 days on 20 March 2076 at 16:37.
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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 942 of Meeus index or 1895 from Brown series.
Length of current 942 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 23 minutes. It is 42 minutes shorter than next lunation 943 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 ∠26.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠48.3°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 3 March 2076 at 17:20 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 March 2076 at 16:37 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 404 417 km (251 293 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 173 km (251 763 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 13 March 2076 at 06:34 in ♋ Cancer, 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 27 March 2076 at 10:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 02:15 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠23.806°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-23.953° in its southern standstill point on 28 March 2076 at 05:49 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 6 days on 20 March 2076 at 16:37 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
