Moon* ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 17 April 2070 at 17:32.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1791" and ∠1907".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2070 after 1 day on 25 April 2070 at 09:31.
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 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 869 of Meeus index or 1822 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 38 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠333.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠350.2°.
11 days after point of perigee on 12 April 2070 at 16:43 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 28 April 2070 at 06:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 400 198 km (248 672 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 893 km (252 210 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♎ Libra at 13:41 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 8 May 2070 at 19:39 in ♈ Aries.
At 13:41 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
9 days since the previous standstill on 15 April 2070 at 06:43 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.748°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.761° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 April 2070 at 10:16 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 1 day on 25 April 2070 at 09:31 in ♏ Scorpio the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
