Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1918" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2052 after 13 days on 15 March 2052 at 09:54.
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 07:36 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 645 of Meeus index or 1598 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 51 minutes is the length of new lunation 645. It is 1 hour and 57 minutes longer than next lunation 646 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 53 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 16 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠314.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠335.6°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 21 February 2052 at 10:01 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 March 2052 at 04:33 in ♈ Aries.

11 days after its ascending node on 18 February 2052 at 16:11 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 3 March 2052 at 14:47 in ♈ Aries.

5 days after previous South standstill on 24 February 2052 at 14:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.455°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.384° in the next northern standstill on 8 March 2052 at 14:56 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
