Moon* ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 16 April 2077 at 02:50.
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 ∠15° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1909".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2077 after 16 days on 8 May 2077 at 02:23.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 00:47, this is 15 days after last apogee on 5 April 2077 at 09:27 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 3 May 2077 at 00:26 in ♍ Virgo.
This perigee Moon is 361 175 km (224 424 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 333 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 181 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after its descending node on 12 April 2077 at 10:56 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 April 2077 at 03:43 in ♊ Gemini.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 14 April 2077 at 21:00 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.720°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.782° in the next northern standstill on 27 April 2077 at 12:56 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 22 April 2077 at 17:20 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
