Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1920".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2060 after 15 days on 15 April 2060 at 21:21.
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°).
12 days after point of apogee on 18 March 2060 at 18:59 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 1 April 2060 at 04:11 in ♈ Aries.

10 days after its descending node on 20 March 2060 at 15:22 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 April 2060 at 19:04 in ♉ Taurus.

6 days after previous South standstill on 25 March 2060 at 08:59 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.644°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.697° in the next northern standstill on 6 April 2060 at 21:10 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
