Crescent ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 14 April 2020 at 22:56.
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 first ∠2° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1909".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2020 after 16 days on 7 May 2020 at 10:45.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
Moon is at apogee at 19:01. It is 13 days after previous perigee on 7 April 2020 at 18:08 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 6 May 2020 at 03:03 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 406 463 km (252 564 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 055 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 246 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
7 days after descending node on 13 April 2020 at 02:58 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 27 April 2020 at 17:54 in ♊ Gemini.
19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 13 April 2020 at 21:03 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.805°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.935° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 April 2020 at 15:23 in ♋ Cancer.
In 2 days on 23 April 2020 at 02:26 in ♉ Taurus 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.
