Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 27 March 2093 at 03:18.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1786" and ∠1920".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2093 after 11 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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1153 of Meeus index or 2106 from Brown series.
Length of current 1153 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 1154 length.
Length of current synodic month is 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠73.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠109.2°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 21 March 2093 at 10:04 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 April 2093 at 11:21 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 401 281 km (249 344 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 205 km (251 161 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 22 March 2093 at 12:52 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 April 2093 at 10:03 in ♌ Leo.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 20 March 2093 at 23:15 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.054°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.174° in the next northern standstill on 3 April 2093 at 16:04 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 days on 11 April 2093 at 16:35 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
