Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 28 March 2019 at 04:10.
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 ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1784" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2019 after 20 days on 19 April 2019 at 11:12.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 237 of Meeus index or 1190 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 47 minutes. It is 2 hours and 52 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 4 hours and 2 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠200.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠228.7°.
9 days after point of perigee on 19 March 2019 at 19:47 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 1 April 2019 at 00:14 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 401 730 km (249 623 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 577 km (252 014 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 13:08 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 12 April 2019 at 18:08 in ♋ Cancer.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 28 March 2019 at 13:02 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.863°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠22.016° at the point of next northern standstill on 11 April 2019 at 23:59 in ♋ Cancer.
In 6 days on 5 April 2019 at 08:50 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.
