Moon ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 5 April 2048 at 18:10.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1827" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2048 after 16 days on 28 April 2048 at 11:13.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 596 of Meeus index or 1549 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 52 minutes. It is 46 minutes shorter 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 2 hours and 8 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 55 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠100.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠135.6°.
10 days after point of perigee on 1 April 2048 at 10:10 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 17 April 2048 at 07:22 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 392 316 km (243 774 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 534 km (251 987 mi).
6 days after ascending node on 4 April 2048 at 14:57 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 18 April 2048 at 16:39 in ♊ Gemini.
6 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 3 April 2048 at 18:56 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.977°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.861° at the point of next northern standstill on 17 April 2048 at 19:00 in ♊ Gemini.
In 1 day on 13 April 2048 at 05:20 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.
