Crescent ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 8 October 2077 at 20:26.
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 ∠13° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1924".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2077 after 17 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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
11 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 October 2077 at 08:01 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 403 450 km (250 692 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 478 km (252 574 mi).
8 days after its ascending node on 5 October 2077 at 09:50 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 October 2077 at 20:28 in ♏ Scorpio.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 8 October 2077 at 07:01 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.357°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.450° in the next southern standstill on 23 October 2077 at 01:59 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 3 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.
