Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 25 March 2043 at 14:26.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2043 after 25 days on 24 April 2043 at 07:23.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 534 of Meeus index or 1487 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 57 minutes. It is 1 hour and 42 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 2 hours and 47 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 22 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠327.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠345.1°.
Moon is at apogee at 05:28. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 13 March 2043 at 09:10 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 10 April 2043 at 16:14 in ♈ Aries.
This apogee Moon is 405 650 km (252 059 mi) away from Earth. It is 242 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 059 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
3 days after descending node on 25 March 2043 at 21:58 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 9 April 2043 at 01:17 in ♈ Aries.
16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 18 March 2043 at 08:45 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.648°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.660° at the point of next southern standstill on 1 April 2043 at 21:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 11 days on 9 April 2043 at 19:06 in ♈ Aries 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.
