Crescent ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 24 March 2014 at 01:46.
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 ∠23° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1923".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2014 after 18 days on 15 April 2014 at 07:42.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 175 of Meeus index or 1128 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 45 minutes. It is 45 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 59 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 10 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠25.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠46.9°.
Moon is at perigee at 18:30. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 11 March 2014 at 19:46 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 8 April 2014 at 14:52 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 365 706 km (227 239 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 198 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 650 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
8 days after ascending node on 19 March 2014 at 06:30 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 1 April 2014 at 02:30 in ♈ Aries.
8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 23 March 2014 at 07:28 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.997°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.957° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 April 2014 at 07:12 in ♊ Gemini.
In 3 days on 30 March 2014 at 18:45 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.
