Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2033 after 14 days on 16 March 2033 at 01:37.
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 08:23 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 410 of Meeus index or 1363 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 28 minutes is the length of new lunation 410. It is 33 minutes longer than next lunation 411 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 16 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 53 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠353°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠8.3°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 18:17, this is 12 days after last apogee on 16 February 2033 at 19:57 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 15 March 2033 at 22:00 in ♍ Virgo.
This perigee Moon is 357 180 km (221 941 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 328 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 176 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
10 days after its ascending node on 19 February 2033 at 01:22 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 March 2033 at 01:01 in ♈ Aries.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 24 February 2033 at 01:02 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.763°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.688° in the next northern standstill on 8 March 2033 at 13:21 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
