Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1796" and ∠1909".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2094 after 10 days on 30 April 2094 at 13:54.
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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1166 of Meeus index or 2119 from Brown series.
Length of current 1166 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 32 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 1167 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠45.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠74.7°. 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°).
8 days after point of perigee on 12 April 2094 at 03:26 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 April 2094 at 23:58 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 399 128 km (248 007 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 400 km (251 283 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 16:57 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 4 May 2094 at 20:35 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 16:57 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
At 20:13 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠23.077°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-23.185° in its southern standstill point on 5 May 2094 at 01:36 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 10 days on 30 April 2094 at 13:54 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
