Crescent ♉ Taurus
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1895" and ∠1920".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2014 after 14 days on 15 April 2014 at 07:42.
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 18:45 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 176 of Meeus index or 1129 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 30 minutes. It is 56 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 14 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 55 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠46.9°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠76.9°.
3 days after point of perigee on 27 March 2014 at 18:30 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 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 8 April 2014 at 14:52 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 378 340 km (235 090 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 503 km (251 347 mi).
12 days after ascending node on 19 March 2014 at 06:30 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 1 April 2014 at 02:30 in ♈ Aries.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
8 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 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.957° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 April 2014 at 07:12 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
