Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 13 January 2076 at 03:02.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2076 after 1 day on 21 January 2076 at 04:39.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 940 of Meeus index or 1893 from Brown series.
Length of current 940 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 47 minutes. It is 24 minutes longer than next lunation 941 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 57 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 12 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠354°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠9.4°. 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°).
12 days after point of perigee on 6 January 2076 at 18:38 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 20 January 2076 at 21:24 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 404 544 km (251 372 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 390 km (252 519 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 00:50 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 2 February 2076 at 04:01 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 00:50 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
At 14:14 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠23.505°. This is the year's northernmost lunar standstill of 2076. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-23.547° in its southern standstill point on 2 February 2076 at 15:14 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day on 21 January 2076 at 04:39 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
