Crescent ♉ Taurus
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1785" and ∠1913".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2002 after 13 days on 27 April 2002 at 03:00.
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 19:21 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 28 of Meeus index or 981 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 24 minutes. It is 2 hours and 23 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 2 hours and 40 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 23 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠204.7°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠233.6°.
3 days after point of apogee on 10 April 2002 at 05:32 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 25 April 2002 at 16:25 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 401 507 km (249 485 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 088 km (223 748 mi).
10 days after descending node on 2 April 2002 at 18:20 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 17 April 2002 at 09:15 in ♊ Gemini.
23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 4 April 2002 at 08:23 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.771°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.908° at the point of next northern standstill on 19 April 2002 at 02:11 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
