Crescent ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 2 April 2005 at 00:50.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1918".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2005 after 19 days on 24 April 2005 at 10:06.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 64 of Meeus index or 1017 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 22 minutes. It is 51 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 47 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠36.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠62.3°.
Moon is at perigee at 11:10. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 19 March 2005 at 22:54 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 16 April 2005 at 18:41 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 368 492 km (228 970 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 984 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 1 864 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
8 days after descending node on 27 March 2005 at 05:15 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 9 April 2005 at 02:59 in ♈ Aries.
22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 1 April 2005 at 10:19 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.372°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.381° at the point of next northern standstill on 14 April 2005 at 16:38 in ♊ Gemini.
In 4 days on 8 April 2005 at 20:32 in ♈ Aries the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
