Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2041 after 15 days on 13 July 2041 at 19:01.
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 11:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 513 of Meeus index or 1466 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 45 minutes is the length of new lunation 513. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes shorter than next lunation 514 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠123.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠152.5°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 17 June 2041 at 11:48 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 July 2041 at 06:46 in ♍ Virgo.

4 days after its ascending node on 24 June 2041 at 08:57 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 July 2041 at 20:45 in ♏ Scorpio.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 10:46 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠27.286°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-27.311° in its southern standstill point on 12 July 2041 at 18:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
