Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1907".
The Full Moon this days is the Pink of April 2070.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°.
12 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 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 28 April 2070 at 06:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 402 809 km (250 294 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 893 km (252 210 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 24 April 2070 at 13:41 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 8 May 2070 at 19:39 in ♈ Aries.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
10 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 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.761° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 April 2070 at 10:16 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
