Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1848" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2036 after 13 days on 10 April 2036 at 20:22.
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 20:57 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 448 of Meeus index or 1401 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 36 minutes is the length of new lunation 448. It is 2 hours and 52 minutes longer than next lunation 449 length.
Length of current synodic month is 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠258.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠292.8°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 21 March 2036 at 21:41 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 April 2036 at 09:36 in ♌ Leo.

4 days after its descending node on 24 March 2036 at 11:54 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 April 2036 at 19:59 in ♌ Leo.

7 days after previous South standstill on 20 March 2036 at 12:11 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.336°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.439° in the next northern standstill on 3 April 2036 at 13:10 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
