Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1913".
The Full Moon this days is the Pink of April 2082.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1017 of Meeus index or 1970 from Brown series.
Length of current 1017 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 57 minutes. It is 2 hours and 12 minutes longer than next lunation 1018 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠179.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠203.1°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 12 April 2082 at 15:53 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 April 2082 at 15:39 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 364 249 km (226 334 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 316 km (252 473 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 9 April 2082 at 20:43 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 April 2082 at 17:02 in ♒ Aquarius.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous North standstill on 4 April 2082 at 18:02 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.159°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.081° in the next southern standstill on 17 April 2082 at 07:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
