Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 19 March 2087 at 06:09.
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 ∠8° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1925".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2087 after 26 days on 17 April 2087 at 23:17.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1078 of Meeus index or 2031 from Brown series.
Length of current 1078 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes longer than next lunation 1079 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠330.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠347.9°. 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 apogee on this date at 11:38, this is 15 days after last perigee on 6 March 2087 at 18:05 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 4 April 2087 at 02:28 in ♈ Aries.
This apogee Moon is 405 772 km (252 135 mi) away from Earth. It is 364 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 937 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
12 days after its descending node on 9 March 2087 at 22:37 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 March 2087 at 01:56 in ♏ Scorpio.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 11 March 2087 at 11:26 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.096°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.961° in the next southern standstill on 25 March 2087 at 23:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 11 days on 3 April 2087 at 09:26 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
