Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1876" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2089 after 28 days on 24 April 2089 at 21:22.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1103 of Meeus index or 2056 from Brown series.
Length of current 1103 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 22 minutes. It is 3 hours and 4 minutes longer than next lunation 1104 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 38 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 25 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠244.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠280.3°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 23 March 2089 at 00:07 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 April 2089 at 22:18 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 382 059 km (237 400 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 427 km (251 299 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♎ Libra at 05:54 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 10 April 2089 at 16:32 in ♈ Aries.
At 05:54 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
8 days after previous North standstill on 19 March 2089 at 08:14 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.481°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.450° in the next southern standstill on 1 April 2089 at 11:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 14 days on 10 April 2089 at 22:45 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
