Crescent ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 14 March 2042 at 23:21.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1956" and ∠1927".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2042 after 17 days on 5 April 2042 at 14:16.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 521 of Meeus index or 1474 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 44 minutes. It is 48 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 shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 9 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠344.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠359.8°.
11 days after point of apogee on 8 March 2042 at 05:04 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 March 2042 at 17:40 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 366 412 km (227 678 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 943 km (221 794 mi).
9 days after descending node on 10 March 2042 at 07:08 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 23 March 2042 at 10:11 in ♈ Aries.
23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 15 March 2042 at 17:54 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.137°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.188° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 March 2042 at 05:49 in ♋ Cancer.
In 2 days on 21 March 2042 at 17:23 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
