Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 13 April 2086 at 16:53.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1906" and ∠1911".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2086 after 12 days on 28 April 2086 at 22:35.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1067 of Meeus index or 2020 from Brown series.
Length of current 1067 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 48 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2086. It is 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 1068 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠18.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠37.1°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 12 April 2086 at 15:10 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 April 2086 at 22:37 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 375 984 km (233 626 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 704 km (252 093 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 4 April 2086 at 14:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 April 2086 at 03:54 in ♊ Gemini.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 4 April 2086 at 20:32 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.622°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.550° in the next northern standstill on 17 April 2086 at 10:50 in ♊ Gemini.
After 12 days on 28 April 2086 at 22:35 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
