Crescent ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 22 April 2077 at 17:20.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1930" and ∠1908".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2077 after 14 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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 956 of Meeus index or 1909 from Brown series.
Length of current 956 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 18 minutes. It is 59 minutes shorter than next lunation 957 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 ∠28°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠50.2°. 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 perigee on 21 April 2077 at 00:47 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 May 2077 at 00:26 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 371 441 km (230 803 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 160 km (251 755 mi).
11 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 April 2077 at 03:43 in ♊ Gemini.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 14 April 2077 at 21:00 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.720°. Next 4 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 14 days on 8 May 2077 at 02:23 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
