Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1910".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2091 after 14 days on 3 May 2091 at 09:46.
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 21:20 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1129 of Meeus index or 2082 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 47 minutes is the length of new lunation 1129. It is 2 hours and 13 minutes longer than next lunation 1130 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠189.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠214.7°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 17 April 2091 at 19:25 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 May 2091 at 14:03 in ♎ Libra.

3 days after its descending node on 14 April 2091 at 19:58 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 April 2091 at 04:04 in ♍ Virgo.

8 days after previous South standstill on 9 April 2091 at 13:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.596°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.701° in the next northern standstill on 24 April 2091 at 07:29 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
