Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 17 March 2077 at 16:56.
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 ∠8° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1911" and ∠1927".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2077 after 20 days on 8 April 2077 at 11:05.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
9 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 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 March 2077 at 17:12 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 375 030 km (233 033 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 576 km (222 187 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 16 March 2077 at 09:32 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 March 2077 at 20:39 in ♊ Gemini.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 14:47 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-25.499°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠25.601° in its northern standstill point on 31 March 2077 at 04:33 in ♋ Cancer.
After 5 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.
