Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 3 April 2076 at 17:47.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1822" and ∠1916".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2076 after 11 days on 19 April 2076 at 06:29.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 943 of Meeus index or 1896 from Brown series.
Length of current 943 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 5 minutes. It is 1 hour and 17 minutes shorter than next lunation 944 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 40 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 30 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠48.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠78.4°. 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°).
6 days after point of perigee on 31 March 2076 at 14:52 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 April 2076 at 11:48 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 393 386 km (244 439 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 352 km (251 253 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 27 March 2076 at 10:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 April 2076 at 08:47 in ♊ Gemini.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 28 March 2076 at 05:49 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.953°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.071° in the next northern standstill on 10 April 2076 at 09:56 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 days on 19 April 2076 at 06:29 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
