Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1958" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2060 after 14 days on 17 March 2060 at 03:41.
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 16:11 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 744 of Meeus index or 1697 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 26 minutes is the length of new lunation 744. It is 53 minutes longer than next lunation 745 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 18 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 51 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠342.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠358.2°. 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 20 February 2060 at 10:06 in ♎ Libra. 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 3 March 2060 at 16:59 in ♓ Pisces.

8 days after its descending node on 22 February 2060 at 12:39 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 March 2060 at 11:03 in ♉ Taurus.

4 days after previous South standstill on 27 February 2060 at 00:51 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.445°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.537° in the next northern standstill on 10 March 2060 at 14:36 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
