Moon ♎ Libra
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 96% and growing larger. The 13 days young Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 1 April 2001 at 10:49.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1949" and ∠1917".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2001 after 1 day on 8 April 2001 at 03:22.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 15 of Meeus index or 968 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 5 minutes. It is 2 hours and 45 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 21 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 42 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠232.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠267.3°.
1 day after point of perigee on 5 April 2001 at 10:04 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 17 April 2001 at 06:06 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 367 732 km (228 498 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 501 km (251 345 mi).
5 days after ascending node on 1 April 2001 at 09:01 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 14 April 2001 at 06:52 in ♑ Capricorn.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 1 April 2001 at 10:45 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.007°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.123° at the point of next southern standstill on 14 April 2001 at 11:36 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 1 day on 8 April 2001 at 03:22 in ♎ Libra the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
