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 ∠1968" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2051 after 14 days on 26 April 2051 at 02:19.
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 01:59 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 634 of Meeus index or 1587 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 30 minutes is the length of new lunation 634. It is 3 minutes longer than next lunation 635 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠6.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠23.1°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 10 April 2051 at 16:35 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 April 2051 at 15:59 in ♎ Libra.

Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 19:58 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 25 April 2051 at 19:39 in ♎ Libra.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 2 April 2051 at 15:13 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.184°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.160° in the next northern standstill on 15 April 2051 at 05:12 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
