Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1954" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2070 after 13 days on 25 April 2070 at 09:31.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 02:30 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 869 of Meeus index or 1822 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 38 minutes is the length of new lunation 869. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes longer than next lunation 870 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 3 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠333.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠350.2°. 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 31 March 2070 at 17:01 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 12 April 2070 at 16:43 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 366 899 km (227 980 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 956 km (224 288 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 09:00 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 24 April 2070 at 13:41 in ♎ Libra.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 2 April 2070 at 03:16 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.755°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.748° in the next northern standstill on 15 April 2070 at 06:43 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
