Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1863" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2034 after 15 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 03:53 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 428 of Meeus index or 1381 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 21 minutes is the length of new lunation 428. It is 2 hours and 58 minutes shorter than next lunation 429 length.
Length of current synodic month is 23 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 46 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠73.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠108.6°. 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°).
6 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 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 August 2034 at 12:02 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 384 751 km (239 073 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 240 km (251 183 mi).
10 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 August 2034 at 16:01 in ♍ Virgo.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 10 August 2034 at 13:32 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.276°. Next 10 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.
