Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1869" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2047 after 13 days on 5 August 2047 at 20:38.
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 22:49 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 588 of Meeus index or 1541 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 27 minutes is the length of new lunation 588. It is 1 hour and 12 minutes longer than next lunation 589 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 17 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 52 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠274.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠306.1°. 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 16 July 2047 at 03:57 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 July 2047 at 09:01 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 383 612 km (238 365 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 644 km (229 686 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 21 July 2047 at 20:52 in ♋ Cancer, 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 3 August 2047 at 19:59 in ♑ Capricorn.

3 days after previous North standstill on 19 July 2047 at 18:19 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.339°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.317° in the next southern standstill on 1 August 2047 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.
