Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1929" and ∠1915".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2032 after 16 days on 25 April 2032 at 15:10.
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 16:25 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 398 of Meeus index or 1351 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 15 minutes is the length of new lunation 398. It is 41 minutes shorter than next lunation 399 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 29 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 40 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠23.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠44.4°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 7 April 2032 at 06:55 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 April 2032 at 03:02 in ♌ Leo.

10 days after its ascending node on 29 March 2032 at 15:09 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 April 2032 at 11:00 in ♉ Taurus.

7 days after previous South standstill on 1 April 2032 at 17:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.688°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.650° in the next northern standstill on 14 April 2032 at 13:29 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
