Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 2 October 2077 at 01:20.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1932" and ∠1919".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2077 after 25 days on 31 October 2077 at 10:36.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 1 October 2077 at 22:59 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 15 October 2077 at 08:01 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 370 949 km (230 497 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 478 km (252 574 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 09:50 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 19 October 2077 at 20:28 in ♏ Scorpio.
At 09:50 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
9 days after previous South standstill on 25 September 2077 at 19:33 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.269°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.357° in the next northern standstill on 8 October 2077 at 07:01 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 days on 16 October 2077 at 23:07 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
