Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2034 after 21 days on 29 August 2034 at 16:49.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 427 of Meeus index or 1380 from Brown series.
Length of current 427 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 38 minutes. It is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 428 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 3 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠45.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠73.9°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 08:24, this is 14 days after last apogee on 24 July 2034 at 17:20 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 21 August 2034 at 12:02 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 369 503 km (229 599 mi) away from Earth. It is 6 995 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 853 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
4 days after its descending node on 3 August 2034 at 16:44 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 August 2034 at 16:01 in ♍ Virgo.

11 days after previous South standstill on 28 July 2034 at 08:38 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.336°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.276° in the next northern standstill on 10 August 2034 at 13:32 in ♊ Gemini.
After 5 days on 14 August 2034 at 03:53 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
