Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 21 March 2063 at 20:16.
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 about ∠15° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1924".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2063 after 18 days on 13 April 2063 at 02:34.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 781 of Meeus index or 1734 from Brown series.
Length of current 781 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 12 minutes. It is 3 hours and 10 minutes longer than next lunation 782 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 28 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 35 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠204.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠234.9°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 07:06, this is 12 days after last perigee on 13 March 2063 at 05:45 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 10 April 2063 at 05:55 in ♍ Virgo.
This apogee Moon is 405 402 km (251 905 mi) away from Earth. It is 6 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 307 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
11 days after its descending node on 13 March 2063 at 22:26 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 March 2063 at 21:01 in ♓ Pisces.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 21 March 2063 at 12:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.488°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.415° in the next northern standstill on 4 April 2063 at 23:41 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 days on 30 March 2063 at 00:50 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
