Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1869" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2038 after 14 days on 14 August 2038 at 22:57.
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 13:32 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 476 of Meeus index or 1429 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 8 minutes is the length of new lunation 476. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes longer than next lunation 477 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 33 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠259.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠293.3°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 24 July 2038 at 07:19 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 5 August 2038 at 21:36 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 383 602 km (238 359 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 833 km (229 182 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 29 July 2038 at 20:50 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 August 2038 at 18:25 in ♑ Capricorn.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 30 July 2038 at 00:20 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.049°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.076° in the next southern standstill on 11 August 2038 at 22:09 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
