Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1956" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2037 after 14 days on 25 August 2037 at 19:09.
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 10:41 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 465 of Meeus index or 1418 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 44 minutes is the length of new lunation 465. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2037. It is 25 minutes shorter than next lunation 466 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠338.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠354.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
10 days after point of apogee on 31 July 2037 at 12:33 in ♓ Pisces. 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 12 August 2037 at 17:37 in ♍ Virgo.

2 days after previous North standstill on 8 August 2037 at 21:01 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.369°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.390° in the next southern standstill on 21 August 2037 at 14:16 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
