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 about ∠21° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1918".
The Full Moon this days is the Pink of April 2091.
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 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 03:26, this is 13 days after last apogee on 21 March 2091 at 17:48 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 17 April 2091 at 19:25 in ♈ Aries.
This perigee Moon is 356 783 km (221 695 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2091. It is 5 725 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 358 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
2 days after its ascending node on 1 April 2091 at 21:03 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 April 2091 at 19:58 in ♓ Pisces.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
7 days after previous North standstill on 28 March 2091 at 00:55 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.531°. Next 5 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.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
