Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1826" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2030 after 15 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 06:35 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 373 of Meeus index or 1326 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 28 minutes is the length of new lunation 373. It is 42 minutes shorter than next lunation 374 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 44 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 19 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠104.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠139°. 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 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 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 March 2030 at 02:23 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 392 508 km (243 893 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 748 km (251 499 mi).
6 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 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 March 2030 at 06:43 in ♊ Gemini.

6 days after previous South standstill on 25 February 2030 at 22:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.278°. Next 7 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.
