Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 25 March 2079 at 15:46.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1823" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2079 after 18 days on 16 April 2079 at 05:02.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 979 of Meeus index or 1932 from Brown series.
Length of current 979 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 41 minutes. It is 2 hours and 14 minutes longer than next lunation 980 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠296.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠322.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
4 days after point of apogee on 23 March 2079 at 14:17 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 April 2079 at 09:24 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 393 149 km (244 291 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 660 km (225 968 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 20 March 2079 at 07:24 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 April 2079 at 08:26 in ♉ Taurus.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 25 March 2079 at 16:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.001°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.041° in the next northern standstill on 7 April 2079 at 18:50 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 days on 2 April 2079 at 01:30 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
