Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2100 after 14 days on 23 May 2100 at 17:25.
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 08:54 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1241 of Meeus index or 2194 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 38 minutes is the length of new lunation 1241. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than next lunation 1242 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 54 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 9 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠200.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠227.5°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 7 May 2100 at 05:13 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 22 May 2100 at 11:04 in ♏ Scorpio.

5 days after its ascending node on 4 May 2100 at 01:19 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 May 2100 at 10:11 in ♍ Virgo.

11 days after previous South standstill on 28 April 2100 at 00:08 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.374°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.277° in the next northern standstill on 12 May 2100 at 13:36 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
