Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1957" and ∠1907".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2045 after 14 days on 26 September 2045 at 06:11.
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 01:28 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 565 of Meeus index or 1518 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 9 minutes is the length of new lunation 565. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes shorter than next lunation 566 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 35 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 34 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠16.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠34.3°. 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 10 September 2045 at 02:20 in ♍ Virgo. 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 22 September 2045 at 12:20 in ♒ Aquarius.

2 days after its descending node on 9 September 2045 at 07:56 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 September 2045 at 19:34 in ♒ Aquarius.

6 days after previous North standstill on 5 September 2045 at 06:33 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.764°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.716° in the next southern standstill on 17 September 2045 at 22:27 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
