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 first ∠3° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1914".
The Full Moon this days is the Pink of April 2074.
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 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.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠144°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠170.1°.
Moon is at perigee at 14:37. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 31 March 2074 at 02:22 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 27 April 2074 at 09:29 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 358 026 km (222 467 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 482 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 330 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
5 days after ascending node on 6 April 2074 at 16:25 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 19 April 2074 at 03:12 in ♒ Aquarius.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 4 April 2074 at 08:53 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.533°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.642° at the point of next southern standstill on 17 April 2074 at 01:07 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
