Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 23 March 2088 at 00:00.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2088 after 9 days on 6 April 2088 at 00:59.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1091 of Meeus index or 2044 from Brown series.
Length of current 1091 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 24 minutes. It is 2 hours longer than next lunation 1092 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠309.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠331.3°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 26 March 2088 at 07:42 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 April 2088 at 05:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 363 424 km (225 821 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 923 km (251 607 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 25 March 2088 at 08:46 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 April 2088 at 14:55 in ♏ Scorpio.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 15 March 2088 at 00:16 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.517°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.444° in the next northern standstill on 28 March 2088 at 10:38 in ♊ Gemini.
After 9 days on 6 April 2088 at 00:59 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
