Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 29 August 2076 at 13:43.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1864" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2076 after 8 days on 13 September 2076 at 00:38.
The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 948 of Meeus index or 1901 from Brown series.
Length of current 948 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 44 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2076. It is 21 minutes longer than next lunation 949 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 59 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 3 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠193.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠219.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
7 days after point of apogee on 28 August 2076 at 02:51 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 September 2076 at 01:19 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 384 599 km (238 979 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 503 km (222 763 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 23 August 2076 at 10:33 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 September 2076 at 23:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.

10 days after previous North standstill on 24 August 2076 at 20:21 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.455°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.585° in the next southern standstill on 8 September 2076 at 07:25 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 8 days on 13 September 2076 at 00:38 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
