Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1905".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2052 after 15 days on 13 May 2052 at 19:00.
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 18:27 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 646 of Meeus index or 1599 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 54 minutes is the length of new lunation 646. It is 1 hour and 25 minutes longer than next lunation 647 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 50 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 19 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠335.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠352.1°. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 16 April 2052 at 17:03 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 April 2052 at 14:35 in ♉ Taurus.

9 days after previous South standstill on 19 April 2052 at 06:22 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.346°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.384° in the next northern standstill on 2 May 2052 at 05:36 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
