Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1920".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2029 after 14 days on 22 October 2029 at 09:28.
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 19:14 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 368 of Meeus index or 1321 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 10 minutes is the length of new lunation 368. It is 1 hour and 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 369 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 34 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 35 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠348.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠3.8°. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 25 September 2029 at 19:40 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 October 2029 at 11:26 in ♎ Libra.

7 days after its descending node on 30 September 2029 at 04:00 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 October 2029 at 17:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.

8 days after previous North standstill on 29 September 2029 at 06:54 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.869°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.772° in the next southern standstill on 12 October 2029 at 01:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
