Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1878" and ∠1919".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2049 after 15 days on 18 April 2049 at 01:04.
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 11:39 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 609 of Meeus index or 1562 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 32 minutes is the length of new lunation 609. It is 1 hour and 17 minutes shorter than next lunation 610 length.
Length of current synodic month is 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠67°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠102.4°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 28 March 2049 at 13:03 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 April 2049 at 03:32 in ♋ Cancer.

8 days after its ascending node on 24 March 2049 at 20:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 April 2049 at 22:31 in ♊ Gemini.

8 days after previous South standstill on 25 March 2049 at 08:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.314°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.212° in the next northern standstill on 7 April 2049 at 13:42 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
