Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1900" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2044 after 13 days on 12 April 2044 at 09:39.
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 09:26 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 547 of Meeus index or 1500 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 16 minutes is the length of new lunation 547. It is 2 hours and 19 minutes longer than next lunation 548 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠304.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠328.1°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 21 March 2044 at 01:56 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 April 2044 at 02:16 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 377 160 km (234 356 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 395 km (228 289 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 27 March 2044 at 23:51 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 April 2044 at 20:15 in ♍ Virgo.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 21 March 2044 at 10:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.641°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.596° in the next northern standstill on 3 April 2044 at 22:19 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
