Quarter* ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 7 days on 18 March 2083 at 09:56.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1784" and ∠1924".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2083 after 8 days on 2 April 2083 at 18:07.
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 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1029 of Meeus index or 1982 from Brown series.
Length of current 1029 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 13 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2083. It is 9 minutes longer than next lunation 1030 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 29 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 34 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠126.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠156.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
2 days after point of apogee on 23 March 2083 at 01:37 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 April 2083 at 03:43 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 401 870 km (249 710 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 962 km (223 670 mi).
10 days after its ascending node on 15 March 2083 at 05:07 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 March 2083 at 18:06 in ♌ Leo.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 12:42 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠27.306°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-27.208° in its southern standstill point on 7 April 2083 at 11:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 8 days on 2 April 2083 at 18:07 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
