Gibbous ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 9 March 2077 at 17:42.
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 ∠11° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1778" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2077 after 27 days on 8 April 2077 at 11:05.
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 954 of Meeus index or 1907 from Brown series.
Length of current 954 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 18 minutes. It is 22 minutes longer than next lunation 955 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 26 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 43 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠355.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠10.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
2 days after point of apogee on 9 March 2077 at 03:31 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 March 2077 at 17:12 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 403 220 km (250 549 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 576 km (222 187 mi).
9 days after its ascending node on 1 March 2077 at 17:53 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 March 2077 at 09:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
7 days after previous North standstill on 3 March 2077 at 22:10 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.349°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.499° in the next southern standstill on 18 March 2077 at 14:47 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 12 days on 24 March 2077 at 08:24 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
