Crescent ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 3 April 2087 at 09:26.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1918".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2087 after 13 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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1079 of Meeus index or 2032 from Brown series.
Length of current 1079 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 25 minutes. It is 37 minutes longer than next lunation 1080 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 19 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 50 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠347.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠3.2°. 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 02:28, this is 12 days after last apogee on 22 March 2087 at 11:38 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 18 April 2087 at 16:59 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 357 973 km (222 434 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 535 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 383 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 days after its ascending node on 24 March 2087 at 01:56 in ♏ Scorpio, 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 6 April 2087 at 03:50 in ♉ Taurus.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 25 March 2087 at 23:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.961°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.888° in the next northern standstill on 7 April 2087 at 18:11 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 17 April 2087 at 23:17 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
