Crescent ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 20 September 2076 at 01:06.
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 ∠21° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2076 after 17 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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 11:16, this is 12 days after last perigee on 12 September 2076 at 01:19 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 10 October 2076 at 06:57 in ♓ Pisces.
This apogee Moon is 405 798 km (252 151 mi) away from Earth. It is 390 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 911 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
5 days after its ascending node on 19 September 2076 at 11:58 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 October 2076 at 00:05 in ♐ Sagittarius.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 21 September 2076 at 02:19 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.689°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.833° in the next southern standstill on 5 October 2076 at 13:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 3 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.
