Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1808" and ∠1927".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2045 after 14 days on 1 April 2045 at 18:43.
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 17:15 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 559 of Meeus index or 1512 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 12 minutes is the length of new lunation 559. It is 3 hours and 12 minutes longer than next lunation 560 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 28 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 35 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠238.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠274.3°. 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 13 March 2045 at 18:23 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 29 March 2045 at 17:25 in ♌ Leo.

1 day after its ascending node on 16 March 2045 at 12:51 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 29 March 2045 at 22:04 in ♌ Leo.

7 days after previous South standstill on 10 March 2045 at 22:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.164°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.089° in the next northern standstill on 25 March 2045 at 07:00 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
