Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1804" and ∠1927".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2083 after 15 days on 2 April 2083 at 18:07.
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 09:56 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1029 of Meeus index or 1982 from Brown series.
29 days, 16 hours and 13 minutes is the length of new lunation 1029. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2083. It is 9 minutes longer than next lunation 1030 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 29 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 34 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠126.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠156.3°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 7 March 2083 at 02:14 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 March 2083 at 01:37 in ♉ Taurus.

3 days after its ascending node on 15 March 2083 at 05:07 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 2083 at 18:06 in ♌ Leo.

7 days after previous South standstill on 11 March 2083 at 05:07 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.406°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.306° in the next northern standstill on 25 March 2083 at 12:42 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
