Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 13 September 2076 at 00:38.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1894" and ∠1909".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2076 after 25 days on 12 October 2076 at 09:37.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 12 September 2076 at 01:19 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 September 2076 at 11:16 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 378 433 km (235 147 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 798 km (252 151 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 6 September 2076 at 23:25 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 September 2076 at 11:58 in ♊ Gemini.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 8 September 2076 at 07:25 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.585°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.689° in the next northern standstill on 21 September 2076 at 02:19 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 days on 28 September 2076 at 05:27 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
