Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1800" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2036 after 13 days on 12 March 2036 at 09:09.
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 04:59 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 447 of Meeus index or 1400 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 57 minutes is the length of new lunation 447. It is 3 hours and 21 minutes longer than next lunation 448 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠223.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠258.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
4 days after point of apogee on 23 February 2036 at 03:15 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 March 2036 at 02:38 in ♌ Leo.

1 day after its descending node on 26 February 2036 at 05:24 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 March 2036 at 13:58 in ♌ Leo.

5 days after previous South standstill on 22 February 2036 at 04:47 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.246°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.281° in the next northern standstill on 7 March 2036 at 07:25 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
