Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2092 after 11 days on 22 April 2092 at 02:29.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1141 of Meeus index or 2094 from Brown series.
Length of current 1141 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 58 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2092. It is 19 minutes longer than next lunation 1142 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 14 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 49 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠140.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠167.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 15:02, this is 15 days after last perigee on 25 March 2092 at 19:17 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 23 April 2092 at 01:16 in ♏ Scorpio.
This apogee Moon is 405 857 km (252 188 mi) away from Earth. It is 449 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 852 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
8 days after its descending node on 2 April 2092 at 11:01 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 April 2092 at 00:51 in ♌ Leo.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 30 March 2092 at 05:01 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.597°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.718° in the next northern standstill on 13 April 2092 at 15:44 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 days on 22 April 2092 at 02:29 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
