Gibbous ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 9 January 2077 at 04:37.
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 ∠6° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1783" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2077 after 28 days on 7 February 2077 at 23:08.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 952 of Meeus index or 1905 from Brown series.
Length of current 952 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 31 minutes longer than next lunation 953 length.
Length of current synodic month is 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠319.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠339.5°. 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°).
12 days after point of perigee on 28 December 2076 at 13:46 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 January 2077 at 15:13 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 401 949 km (249 760 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 574 km (252 012 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 6 January 2077 at 14:25 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 January 2077 at 03:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 8 January 2077 at 11:32 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.079°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.115° in the next southern standstill on 22 January 2077 at 20:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 14 days on 24 January 2077 at 12:45 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
