Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 28 September 2076 at 05:27.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1899" and ∠1919".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2076 after 8 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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 949 of Meeus index or 1902 from Brown series.
Length of current 949 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 23 minutes. It is 45 minutes longer than next lunation 950 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 39 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 24 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠219.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠254.1°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 24 September 2076 at 11:16 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 October 2076 at 06:57 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 377 441 km (234 531 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 695 km (225 368 mi).
14 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 October 2076 at 00:05 in ♐ Sagittarius.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the first to the middle part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 21 September 2076 at 02:19 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.689°. Next 2 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 8 days on 12 October 2076 at 09:37 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
