Quarter* ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 3 April 2076 at 17:47.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2076 after 8 days on 19 April 2076 at 06:29.
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 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 943 of Meeus index or 1896 from Brown series.
Length of current 943 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 5 minutes. It is 1 hour and 17 minutes shorter than next lunation 944 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 40 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 30 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠48.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠78.4°. 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 31 March 2076 at 14:52 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 12 April 2076 at 11:48 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 403 319 km (250 611 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 352 km (251 253 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 9 April 2076 at 08:47 in ♊ Gemini, 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 23 April 2076 at 11:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 09:56 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠24.071°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-24.184° in its southern standstill point on 24 April 2076 at 11:14 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 8 days on 19 April 2076 at 06:29 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
