Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 28 March 2091 at 06:31.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1949" and ∠1920".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2091 after 2 days on 4 April 2091 at 01:31.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1128 of Meeus index or 2081 from Brown series.
Length of current 1128 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 34 minutes. It is 1 hour and 47 minutes longer than next lunation 1129 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 50 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 13 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠165.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠189.5°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 21 March 2091 at 17:48 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 April 2091 at 03:26 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 367 732 km (228 498 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 783 km (221 695 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♍ Virgo at 21:03 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 14 April 2091 at 19:58 in ♓ Pisces.
At 21:03 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
4 days after previous North standstill on 28 March 2091 at 00:55 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.531°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.596° in the next southern standstill on 9 April 2091 at 13:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 2 days on 4 April 2091 at 01:31 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
