There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 633 of Meeus index or 1586 from Brown series.
Length of current 633 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 7 minutes. It is 37 minutes longer than next lunation 634 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠351.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠6.6°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 05:02, this is 12 days after last apogee on 28 February 2051 at 09:20 in ♎ Libra.

7 days after previous South standstill on 6 March 2051 at 08:27 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.338°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.258° in the next northern standstill on 18 March 2051 at 21:07 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 27 March 2051 at 09:00 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
