Quarter* ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 9 March 2077 at 17:42.
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.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1864" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2077 after 22 days on 8 April 2077 at 11:05.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 954 of Meeus index or 1907 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 18 minutes. It is 22 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 26 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 43 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠355.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠10.8°.
7 days after point of apogee on 9 March 2077 at 03:31 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 March 2077 at 17:12 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 384 469 km (238 898 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 576 km (222 187 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 09:32 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 28 March 2077 at 20:39 in ♊ Gemini.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 3 March 2077 at 22:10 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.349°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.499° at the point of next southern standstill on 18 March 2077 at 14:47 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 7 days on 24 March 2077 at 08:24 in ♈ Aries 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.
