Quarter* ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 24 March 2077 at 08:24.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1845" and ∠1920".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2077 after 8 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 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 955 of Meeus index or 1908 from Brown series.
Length of current 955 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 56 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2077. It is 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 956 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠28°. 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°).
6 days after point of perigee on 23 March 2077 at 17:12 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 April 2077 at 09:27 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 388 487 km (241 395 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 101 km (252 339 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 28 March 2077 at 20:39 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 April 2077 at 10:56 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 18 March 2077 at 14:47 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.499°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.601° in the next northern standstill on 31 March 2077 at 04:33 in ♋ Cancer.
After 8 days on 8 April 2077 at 11:05 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
