Crescent ♉ Taurus
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1915".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2100 after 13 days on 24 April 2100 at 09:43.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 16:16 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1240 of Meeus index or 2193 from Brown series.
29 days, 16 hours and 37 minutes is the length of new lunation 1240. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes longer than next lunation 1241 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 53 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 10 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠176.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠200.1°. 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 01:45, this is 14 days after last perigee on 26 March 2100 at 14:59 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 24 April 2100 at 02:13 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 406 566 km (252 628 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2100. It is 1 158 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 143 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
3 days after its ascending node on 6 April 2100 at 22:10 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 April 2100 at 05:33 in ♍ Virgo.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 31 March 2100 at 15:42 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.525°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.446° in the next northern standstill on 15 April 2100 at 08:21 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
