Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 9 April 2062 at 17:17.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1951" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2062 after 11 days on 23 April 2062 at 16:57.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 770 of Meeus index or 1723 from Brown series.
Length of current 770 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 6 minutes. It is 2 hours and 17 minutes longer than next lunation 771 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 38 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 31 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠301.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠325.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
10 days after point of apogee on 1 April 2062 at 14:06 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 April 2062 at 17:32 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 367 486 km (228 345 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 906 km (228 606 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 8 April 2062 at 08:18 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 April 2062 at 04:56 in ♎ Libra.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 31 March 2062 at 23:35 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.700°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.655° in the next northern standstill on 14 April 2062 at 15:56 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 days on 23 April 2062 at 16:57 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
