Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 13 March 2093 at 04:06.
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 ∠8° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1924" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2093 after 26 days on 11 April 2093 at 16:35.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1152 of Meeus index or 2105 from Brown series.
Length of current 1152 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 12 minutes. It is 42 minutes shorter than next lunation 1153 length.
Length of current synodic month is 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠43.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠73.1°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 6 March 2093 at 14:56 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 March 2093 at 10:04 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 372 508 km (231 466 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 821 km (229 796 mi).
7 days after its ascending node on 9 March 2093 at 06:15 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 March 2093 at 12:52 in ♒ Aquarius.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 7 March 2093 at 08:10 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.943°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.054° in the next southern standstill on 20 March 2093 at 23:15 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 10 days on 27 March 2093 at 03:18 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
