Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1864" and ∠1916".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2062 after 15 days on 23 April 2062 at 16:57.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 769 of Meeus index or 1722 from Brown series.
Length of current 769 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 4 minutes. It is 2 hours and 58 minutes longer than next lunation 770 length.
Length of current synodic month is 20 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 43 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠268.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠301.6°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 1 April 2062 at 14:06 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 April 2062 at 17:32 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 384 556 km (238 952 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 906 km (228 606 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♈ Aries at 08:18 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 21 April 2062 at 04:56 in ♎ Libra.

7 days after previous South standstill on 31 March 2062 at 23:35 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.700°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.655° in the next northern standstill on 14 April 2062 at 15:56 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 9 April 2062 at 17:17 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
