Crescent ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 14 April 2031 at 12:58.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1901" and ∠1911".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2031 after 18 days on 7 May 2031 at 03:40.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is 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.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠70.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠106.4°.
6 days after point of perigee on 11 April 2031 at 19:13 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 27 April 2031 at 10:30 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 377 029 km (234 275 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 758 km (251 505 mi).
7 days after ascending node on 10 April 2031 at 14:56 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 23 April 2031 at 20:23 in ♉ Taurus.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 12 April 2031 at 00:31 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.160°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.107° at the point of next northern standstill on 25 April 2031 at 12:37 in ♊ Gemini.
In 3 days on 21 April 2031 at 16:57 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.
