Crescent ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 24 March 2020 at 09:28.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♉ Taurus 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 2020 after 11 days on 8 April 2020 at 02:35.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 250 of Meeus index or 1203 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 58 minutes. It is 1 hour and 45 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 14 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 49 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠177.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠201.8°.
2 days after point of apogee on 24 March 2020 at 15:23 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 7 April 2020 at 18:08 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 401 693 km (249 600 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 909 km (221 773 mi).
10 days after descending node on 17 March 2020 at 01:00 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 31 March 2020 at 16:51 in ♊ Gemini.
22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 17 March 2020 at 14:07 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.540°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.702° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 April 2020 at 09:12 in ♋ Cancer.
In 11 days on 8 April 2020 at 02:35 in ♎ Libra the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
