Gibbous ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 28 March 2042 at 12:00.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1817" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2042 after 6 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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 522 of Meeus index or 1475 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 56 minutes. It is 20 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 21 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠359.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠15.5°.
8 days after point of perigee on 21 March 2042 at 17:40 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 4 April 2042 at 05:51 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 394 431 km (245 088 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 302 km (252 464 mi).
7 days after ascending node on 23 March 2042 at 10:11 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 6 April 2042 at 12:20 in ♎ Libra.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 28 March 2042 at 05:49 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.188°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.222° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 April 2042 at 00:33 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 6 days on 5 April 2042 at 14:16 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.
