Gibbous ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 2 April 2028 at 19:15.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1916".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2028 after 1 day on 9 April 2028 at 10:27.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 349 of Meeus index or 1302 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 16 minutes. It is 2 hours and 47 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 2 hours and 32 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 31 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠212.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠243.3°.
Moon is at perigee at 16:02. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 22 March 2028 at 23:24 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 19 April 2028 at 15:13 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 361 361 km (224 539 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 147 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 8 995 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after descending node on 3 April 2028 at 22:08 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 16 April 2028 at 17:56 in ♑ Capricorn.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 1 April 2028 at 03:04 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.235°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.138° at the point of next southern standstill on 13 April 2028 at 18:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 1 day on 9 April 2028 at 10:27 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.
