Crescent ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 17 September 2077 at 05:53.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1910".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2077 after 13 days on 2 October 2077 at 01:20.
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 961 of Meeus index or 1914 from Brown series.
Length of current 961 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 14 minutes. It is 39 minutes shorter than next lunation 962 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 30 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 33 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠171°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠194.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 06:17, this is 14 days after last perigee on 3 September 2077 at 12:31 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 1 October 2077 at 22:59 in ♈ Aries.
This apogee Moon is 406 604 km (252 652 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2077. It is 1 196 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 105 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
10 days after its ascending node on 8 September 2077 at 05:17 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 22 September 2077 at 17:43 in ♏ Scorpio.
10 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 11 September 2077 at 00:42 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.130°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.269° in the next southern standstill on 25 September 2077 at 19:33 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 13 days on 2 October 2077 at 01:20 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
