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 ∠1° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1943" and ∠1919".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2032 after 23 days on 25 April 2032 at 15:10.
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 398 of Meeus index or 1351 from Brown series.
Length of current 398 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 15 minutes. It is 41 minutes shorter than next lunation 399 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 29 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 40 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠23.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠44.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
11 days after point of apogee on 22 March 2032 at 08:27 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 7 April 2032 at 06:55 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 368 829 km (229 180 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 117 km (226 873 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 29 March 2032 at 15:09 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 April 2032 at 11:00 in ♉ Taurus.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 1 April 2032 at 17:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.688°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.650° in the next northern standstill on 14 April 2032 at 13:29 in ♊ Gemini.
After 7 days on 10 April 2032 at 02:39 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
