Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1953" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2035 after 15 days on 19 August 2035 at 01:00.
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 17:12 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 440 of Meeus index or 1393 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 48 minutes is the length of new lunation 440. It is 2 hours and 19 minutes shorter than next lunation 441 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠25.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠46.4°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 2 August 2035 at 04:06 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 14 August 2035 at 06:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 367 050 km (228 074 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 130 km (251 736 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 23 July 2035 at 13:46 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 August 2035 at 09:20 in ♍ Virgo.

2 days after previous North standstill on 1 August 2035 at 09:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.787°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.761° in the next southern standstill on 14 August 2035 at 22:59 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
