Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1894" and ∠1929".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2097 after 13 days on 27 March 2097 at 21:28.
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 21:56 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1202 of Meeus index or 2155 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 30 minutes is the length of new lunation 1202. It is 2 hours and 16 minutes longer than next lunation 1203 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠293.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠319.8°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 6 March 2097 at 06:30 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 March 2097 at 19:21 in ♉ Taurus.

11 days after its descending node on 3 March 2097 at 10:12 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 March 2097 at 10:29 in ♉ Taurus.

6 days after previous South standstill on 7 March 2097 at 20:59 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.286°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.386° in the next northern standstill on 21 March 2097 at 05:57 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
