Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1918".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2095 after 15 days on 19 April 2095 at 18:14.
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 16:36 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1178 of Meeus index or 2131 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 30 minutes is the length of new lunation 1178. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2095. It is 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 1179 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 03:40, this is 14 days after last apogee on 20 March 2095 at 17:48 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 16 April 2095 at 22:45 in ♍ Virgo.
This perigee Moon is 357 412 km (222 086 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 096 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 944 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days after its descending node on 27 March 2095 at 18:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 April 2095 at 05:17 in ♊ Gemini.

6 days after previous South standstill on 29 March 2095 at 04:59 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.592°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.694° in the next northern standstill on 10 April 2095 at 17:25 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
