Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1816" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2063 after 13 days on 13 April 2063 at 02:34.
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 00:49 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 782 of Meeus index or 1735 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 2 minutes is the length of new lunation 782. It is 3 hours and 7 minutes longer than next lunation 783 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠234.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠270.1°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 25 March 2063 at 07:06 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 April 2063 at 05:55 in ♍ Virgo.

2 days after its ascending node on 27 March 2063 at 21:01 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 April 2063 at 07:03 in ♍ Virgo.

8 days after previous South standstill on 21 March 2063 at 12:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.488°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.415° in the next northern standstill on 4 April 2063 at 23:41 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
