Crescent ♈ Aries
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1866" and ∠1925".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2031 after 15 days on 7 April 2031 at 17:21.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 03:49 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 386 of Meeus index or 1339 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 8 minutes. It is 1 hour and 12 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 24 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 39 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠70.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠106.4°.
5 days after point of perigee on 17 March 2031 at 18:58 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 30 March 2031 at 15:24 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 384 196 km (238 728 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 227 km (251 175 mi).
9 days after ascending node on 14 March 2031 at 11:38 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 27 March 2031 at 14:22 in ♉ Taurus.
9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 15 March 2031 at 19:06 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.353°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.242° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 March 2031 at 04:58 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
