Gibbous ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 16 April 2081 at 17:31.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1909".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2081 after 2 days on 23 April 2081 at 10:20.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1005 of Meeus index or 1958 from Brown series.
Length of current 1005 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 54 minutes. It is 3 hours and 1 minute longer than next lunation 1006 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠231.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠265.8°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 18:04, this is 15 days after last apogee on 4 April 2081 at 19:49 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 2 May 2081 at 14:12 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 364 640 km (226 577 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 132 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 5 716 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♍ Virgo at 16:02 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 4 May 2081 at 10:34 in ♓ Pisces.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 14 April 2081 at 16:08 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.586°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.521° in the next southern standstill on 27 April 2081 at 11:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 2 days on 23 April 2081 at 10:20 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
