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 ∠24° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1853" and ∠1913".
The Full Moon this days is the Pink of April 2071.
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 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 881 of Meeus index or 1834 from Brown series.
Length of current 881 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 27 minutes. It is 2 hours and 41 minutes longer than next lunation 882 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 17 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 52 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠284.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠313.2°. 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 6 April 2071 at 18:12 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 April 2071 at 05:51 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 386 789 km (240 340 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 395 km (251 279 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 13 April 2071 at 06:06 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 April 2071 at 16:52 in ♈ Aries.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
8 days after previous North standstill on 6 April 2071 at 04:30 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.186°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.219° in the next southern standstill on 19 April 2071 at 15:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
