Crescent ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 2 April 2079 at 01:30.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1954" and ∠1919".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2079 after 12 days on 16 April 2079 at 05:02.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 980 of Meeus index or 1933 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 27 minutes. It is 1 hour and 43 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 3 hours and 17 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 52 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠322.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠341.2°.
10 days after point of apogee on 23 March 2079 at 14:17 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 4 April 2079 at 09:24 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 366 818 km (227 930 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 660 km (225 968 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 08:26 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 16 April 2079 at 14:26 in ♎ Libra.
At 08:26 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
8 days since the previous standstill on 25 March 2079 at 16:26 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.001°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.041° at the point of next northern standstill on 7 April 2079 at 18:50 in ♊ Gemini.
In 12 days on 16 April 2079 at 05:02 in ♎ Libra 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.
