Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1868" and ∠1906".
The Full Moon this days is the Pink of April 2032.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 399 of Meeus index or 1352 from Brown series.
Length of current 399 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour shorter than next lunation 400 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠44.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠73.2°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 19 April 2032 at 03:02 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 May 2032 at 20:49 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 383 800 km (238 482 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 512 km (229 604 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 25 April 2032 at 21:52 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 May 2032 at 20:11 in ♉ Taurus.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 14 April 2032 at 13:29 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.650°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.640° in the next southern standstill on 28 April 2032 at 22:45 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
