Crescent ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 4 April 2038 at 16:43.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1917".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2038 after 12 days on 19 April 2038 at 10:36.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 473 of Meeus index or 1426 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 37 minutes. It is 1 hour and 32 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 53 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 10 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠175.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠198.9°.
1 day after point of apogee on 5 April 2038 at 05:32 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 19 April 2038 at 04:30 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 404 673 km (251 452 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 842 km (221 731 mi).
9 days after descending node on 28 March 2038 at 09:42 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 12 April 2038 at 01:27 in ♋ Cancer.
21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 28 March 2038 at 02:02 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.546°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠22.706° at the point of next northern standstill on 11 April 2038 at 21:03 in ♋ Cancer.
In 12 days on 19 April 2038 at 10:36 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.
