Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1918".

Pink Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2093 after 8 days on 11 April 2093 at 16:35.

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1153 of Meeus index or 2106 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.54 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 10 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 53 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠73.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠73.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠109.2°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 11:21. It is 13 days after previous perigee on 21 March 2093 at 10:04 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 15 April 2093 at 13:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 404 205 km

This apogee Moon is 404 205 km (251 161 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest apogee of 2093. It is 1 203 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 154 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

11 days after descending node on 22 March 2093 at 12:52 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 5 April 2093 at 10:03 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 16:04 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠21.174°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-21.301° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 17 April 2093 at 04:44.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 11 April 2093 at 16:35 in ♎ Libra the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
