Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2025 after 14 days on 13 April 2025 at 00:22.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 10:58 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 312 of Meeus index or 1265 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 33 minutes is the length of new lunation 312. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes longer than next lunation 313 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 11 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 58 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠346.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠2.3°. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 17 March 2025 at 16:37 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 March 2025 at 05:26 in ♈ Aries.

1 day after its ascending node on 28 March 2025 at 16:29 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 April 2025 at 19:56 in ♍ Virgo.

7 days after previous South standstill on 22 March 2025 at 06:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.719°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.696° in the next northern standstill on 3 April 2025 at 22:15 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
