Crescent ♉ Taurus
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1871" and ∠1915".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2005 after 14 days on 24 April 2005 at 10:06.
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 20:32 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 65 of Meeus index or 1018 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 13 minutes. It is 57 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 31 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 38 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠62.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠96.6°.
5 days after point of perigee on 4 April 2005 at 11:10 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 16 April 2005 at 18:41 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 383 064 km (238 025 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 304 km (251 223 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♈ Aries at 02:59 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 23 April 2005 at 13:30 in ♎ Libra.
At 02:59 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
8 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 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.381° at the point of next northern standstill on 14 April 2005 at 16:38 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
