Crescent ♈ Aries
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1789" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2074 after 15 days on 11 April 2074 at 18:30.
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 14:19 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 918 of Meeus index or 1871 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 28 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2074. It is 31 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 44 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 19 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠144°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠170.1°.
12 days after point of perigee on 15 March 2074 at 07:27 in ♎ Libra. 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 31 March 2074 at 02:22 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 400 607 km (248 926 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 972 km (252 259 mi).
4 days after descending node on 23 March 2074 at 02:17 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 6 April 2074 at 16:25 in ♌ Leo.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 20 March 2074 at 18:34 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.405°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.533° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 April 2074 at 08:53 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
