Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1847" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2030 after 16 days on 19 March 2030 at 17:56.
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 16:07 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 372 of Meeus index or 1325 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 27 minutes is the length of new lunation 372. It is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 373 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 43 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 20 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠67.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠104.1°. 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 perigee on 22 February 2030 at 10:01 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 March 2030 at 02:23 in ♉ Taurus.

5 days after its ascending node on 26 February 2030 at 05:23 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 March 2030 at 06:43 in ♊ Gemini.

5 days after previous South standstill on 25 February 2030 at 22:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.278°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.130° in the next northern standstill on 12 March 2030 at 01:51 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
