Let's double-check @barrycarter's conclusion: Ignoring the rest of the solar system and even the Moon's non-negligible mass, the velocity of the Moon's motion around the Earth is on average roughly 1 km/sec per $v=\sqrt{GM_E/a_M}$ (the vis-viva equation). The Earth is about 12760 km in diameter, so the Moon traverses the Earth's projection in about 3.5 ...

I finally fixed my issue by still using Tanner's images (named from 0 to 360), and by getting the phases from the SunCalc library (which returns a number between 0 and 1). This way, I could easily associate images of a phase to a given date. +---------+--------+-----------------+ | SunCalc | Tanner | Phase | +---------+--------+-----------------+ |...

JPL HORIZONS can do that. With settings like these: Ephemeris Type : OBSERVER Target Body : Moon [Luna] [301] Observer Location : Geocentric [500] Time Span : Start=2019-09-12, Stop=2019-09-19, Step=1 d Table Settings : QUANTITIES=10,23,24 it returns results like these: Date__(UT)__HR:MN Illu% S-O-T /r S-T-O *************************...

NASAs Scientific Visualization Studio has a page showing the Moon Phase and Libration over the course of each year. On the same page you can find a link to the data table including, among other things, the phase of the moon for each hour of the year in UT. You can download the table as a TXT and JSON file. In case you only want a daily list and are using ...
