Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1888" and ∠1915".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2062 after 14 days on 23 April 2062 at 16:57.
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 17:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 770 of Meeus index or 1723 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 6 minutes is the length of new lunation 770. It is 2 hours and 17 minutes longer than next lunation 771 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 38 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 31 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠301.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠325.7°. 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°).
7 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 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 April 2062 at 17:32 in ♊ Gemini.

1 day after its ascending node on 8 April 2062 at 08:18 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 April 2062 at 04:56 in ♎ Libra.

8 days after previous South standstill on 31 March 2062 at 23:35 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.700°. Next 5 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.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
