Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2064 after 15 days on 1 April 2064 at 17:40.
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 07:03 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 793 of Meeus index or 1746 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 42 minutes is the length of new lunation 793. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2064. It is 1 hour and 25 minutes longer than next lunation 794 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠156.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠181.6°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 21:10, this is 14 days after last perigee on 3 March 2064 at 17:31 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 1 April 2064 at 05:29 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 406 581 km (252 638 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2064. It is 1 173 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 128 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
2 days after its ascending node on 15 March 2064 at 05:39 in ♒ Aquarius, 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 29 March 2064 at 11:52 in ♌ Leo.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 10 March 2064 at 08:07 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.823°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.727° in the next northern standstill on 25 March 2064 at 03:21 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
