Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 28 March 2021 at 18:48.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2021 after 27 days on 27 April 2021 at 03:31.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 262 of Meeus index or 1215 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 10 minutes. It is 19 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 3 hours and 26 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 37 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠124.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠154.8°.
Moon is at perigee at 06:12. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 18 March 2021 at 05:04 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 14 April 2021 at 17:47 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 360 311 km (223 887 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 197 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 045 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
10 days after ascending node on 20 March 2021 at 03:31 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 2 April 2021 at 02:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.
10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 22 March 2021 at 08:35 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.307°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.412° at the point of next southern standstill on 4 April 2021 at 02:08 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 12 days on 12 April 2021 at 02:31 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.
