Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 2 April 2030 at 22:02.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1917".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2030 after 11 days on 18 April 2030 at 03:20.
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 374 of Meeus index or 1327 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 10 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2030. It is 1 minute longer 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 ∠139°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠165.9°.
Moon is at apogee at 18:47. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 21 March 2030 at 22:00 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 19 April 2030 at 03:44 in ♏ Scorpio.
This apogee Moon is 405 659 km (252 065 mi) away from Earth. It is 251 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 050 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
12 days after ascending node on 25 March 2030 at 05:48 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 8 April 2030 at 08:29 in ♊ Gemini.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 25 March 2030 at 03:57 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.011°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠22.881° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 April 2030 at 08:53 in ♊ Gemini.
In 11 days on 18 April 2030 at 03:20 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.
