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 ∠1965" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2044 after 15 days on 8 August 2044 at 21:14.
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 17:10 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 551 of Meeus index or 1504 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 56 minutes is the length of new lunation 551. It is 2 hours and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 552 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠16°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠34°. 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 23 July 2044 at 18:16 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 August 2044 at 05:22 in ♑ Capricorn.

9 days after its ascending node on 14 July 2044 at 16:24 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 July 2044 at 09:02 in ♍ Virgo.

2 days after previous North standstill on 22 July 2044 at 09:09 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.369°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.410° in the next southern standstill on 4 August 2044 at 16:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
