Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1823" and ∠1911".
The Full Moon this days is the Pink of April 2041.
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 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 510 of Meeus index or 1463 from Brown series.
Length of current 510 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 17 minutes. It is 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 511 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 42 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠32.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠56.2°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 10 April 2041 at 23:41 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 26 April 2041 at 16:51 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 393 107 km (244 265 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 410 km (228 298 mi).
13 days after its ascending node on 3 April 2041 at 10:39 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 April 2041 at 22:27 in ♏ Scorpio.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 7 April 2041 at 10:33 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.319°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.368° in the next southern standstill on 21 April 2041 at 19:43 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
