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 ∠1839" and ∠1917".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2084 after 15 days on 20 April 2084 at 17:52.
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 05:52 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1042 of Meeus index or 1995 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 40 minutes is the length of new lunation 1042. It is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 1043 length.
Length of current synodic month is 56 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 7 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠92.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠128.4°. 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°).
8 days after point of perigee on 27 March 2084 at 14:45 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 April 2084 at 15:02 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 389 696 km (242 146 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 434 km (251 304 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 30 March 2084 at 08:50 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 April 2084 at 07:00 in ♋ Cancer.

8 days after previous South standstill on 27 March 2084 at 20:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.978°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.857° in the next northern standstill on 10 April 2084 at 10:37 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
