Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1911".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2064 after 14 days on 1 May 2064 at 02:08.
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 19:01 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 795 of Meeus index or 1748 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 53 minutes is the length of new lunation 795. It is 2 hours and 27 minutes longer than next lunation 796 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠206.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠235.2°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 14 April 2064 at 02:09 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 April 2064 at 13:49 in ♎ Libra.

9 days after previous South standstill on 6 April 2064 at 15:48 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.645°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.520° in the next northern standstill on 21 April 2064 at 08:45 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
