Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 12 October 2076 at 09:37.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1817" and ∠1926".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2076 after 24 days on 10 November 2076 at 21:07.
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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 949 of Meeus index or 1902 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 23 minutes. It is 45 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 39 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 24 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠219.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠254.1°.
7 days after point of perigee on 10 October 2076 at 06:57 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 22 October 2076 at 03:11 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 394 452 km (245 101 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 879 km (251 580 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 16 October 2076 at 15:38 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 31 October 2076 at 02:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 5 October 2076 at 13:46 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.833°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠24.937° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 October 2076 at 10:01 in ♋ Cancer.
In 10 days on 27 October 2076 at 20:50 in ♎ Libra the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
