Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 24 March 2039 at 17:59.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2039 after 10 days on 9 April 2039 at 02:53.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 485 of Meeus index or 1438 from Brown series.
Length of current 485 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 35 minutes. It is 28 minutes shorter than next lunation 486 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 51 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 12 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠120.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠151.8°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 17:29, this is 15 days after last perigee on 13 March 2039 at 18:38 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 10 April 2039 at 17:31 in ♏ Scorpio.
This apogee Moon is 405 124 km (251 732 mi) away from Earth. It is 284 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 585 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
12 days after its descending node on 17 March 2039 at 10:05 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 31 March 2039 at 11:40 in ♊ Gemini.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 18 March 2039 at 11:25 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.232°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.377° in the next northern standstill on 1 April 2039 at 20:16 in ♋ Cancer.
After 10 days on 9 April 2039 at 02:53 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
