Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1887" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2034 after 16 days on 29 August 2034 at 16:49.
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 18:15 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 427 of Meeus index or 1380 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 38 minutes is the length of new lunation 427. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 8 August 2034 at 08:24 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 August 2034 at 12:02 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 379 921 km (236 072 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 240 km (251 183 mi).
9 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 August 2034 at 16:01 in ♍ Virgo.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 10 August 2034 at 13:32 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.276°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.219° in the next southern standstill on 24 August 2034 at 17:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
