Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1891" and ∠1913".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2067 after 15 days on 29 April 2067 at 08:40.
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 19:24 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 832 of Meeus index or 1785 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 57 minutes is the length of new lunation 832. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes shorter than next lunation 833 length.
Length of current synodic month is 47 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 22 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠63.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠98.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
4 days after point of perigee on 9 April 2067 at 05:49 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 April 2067 at 15:37 in ♋ Cancer.

8 days after its ascending node on 5 April 2067 at 05:55 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 April 2067 at 06:40 in ♊ Gemini.

8 days after previous South standstill on 4 April 2067 at 22:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.296°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.205° in the next northern standstill on 17 April 2067 at 23:59 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
