Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 2 April 2083 at 18:07.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1918".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2083 after 27 days on 2 May 2083 at 02:29.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 03:43, this is 12 days after last apogee on 23 March 2083 at 01:37 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 19 April 2083 at 13:44 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 359 962 km (223 670 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 546 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 394 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
5 days after its descending node on 29 March 2083 at 18:06 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 April 2083 at 07:14 in ♒ Aquarius.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 25 March 2083 at 12:42 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.306°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.208° in the next southern standstill on 7 April 2083 at 11:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 days on 17 April 2083 at 02:09 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
