Quarter* ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days 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 ∠2° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1945" and ∠1919".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2021 after 23 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 21 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°.
4 days after point of perigee on 30 March 2021 at 06:12 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 14 April 2021 at 17:47 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 368 479 km (228 962 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 120 km (252 351 mi).
1 day after descending node on 2 April 2021 at 02:41 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 16 April 2021 at 05:53 in ♊ Gemini.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 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 day to face maximum declination of ∠-25.412° at the point of next southern standstill on 4 April 2021 at 02:08 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 8 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.
