Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 16 October 2077 at 23:07.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1785" and ∠1927".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2077 after 12 days on 31 October 2077 at 10:36.
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 962 of Meeus index or 1915 from Brown series.
Length of current 962 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 53 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2077. It is 47 minutes longer than next lunation 963 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠194.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠222.6°. 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 apogee on 15 October 2077 at 08:01 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 October 2077 at 10:09 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 401 653 km (249 576 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 605 km (222 827 mi).
13 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 October 2077 at 20:28 in ♏ Scorpio.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous North standstill on 8 October 2077 at 07:01 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.357°. Next 4 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 12 days on 31 October 2077 at 10:36 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
