Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 30 March 2063 at 00:50.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1904" and ∠1919".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2063 after 9 days on 13 April 2063 at 02:34.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 782 of Meeus index or 1735 from Brown series.
Length of current 782 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 2 minutes. It is 3 hours and 7 minutes longer than next lunation 783 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠234.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠270.1°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 25 March 2063 at 07:06 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 April 2063 at 05:55 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 376 455 km (233 918 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 244 km (226 952 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 27 March 2063 at 21:01 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 April 2063 at 07:03 in ♍ Virgo.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 21 March 2063 at 12:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.488°. Next day 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 9 days on 13 April 2063 at 02:34 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
