Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1915" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2029 after 13 days on 24 August 2029 at 01:51.
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.

29 days, 8 hours and 49 minutes is the length of new lunation 366. It is 19 minutes longer than next lunation 367 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠309.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠331.3°. 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 1 August 2029 at 10:42 in ♈ Aries. 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 13 August 2029 at 09:55 in ♎ Libra.

4 days after previous North standstill on 5 August 2029 at 14:53 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.323°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.253° in the next southern standstill on 18 August 2029 at 13:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
