Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1931" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2028 after 14 days on 5 August 2028 at 08:10.
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 18:27 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 352 of Meeus index or 1305 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 34 minutes is the length of new lunation 352. It is 52 minutes longer than next lunation 353 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 59 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠308.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠330.4°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 11 July 2028 at 22:26 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 July 2028 at 22:14 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 371 257 km (230 688 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 633 km (224 708 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 16:09 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 3 August 2028 at 16:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 19 July 2028 at 07:49 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.940°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.931° in the next southern standstill on 1 August 2028 at 00:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
