Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1801" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2050 after 15 days on 3 August 2050 at 02:20.
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 21:16 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 625 of Meeus index or 1578 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 31 minutes is the length of new lunation 625. It is 1 hour and 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 626 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 47 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 16 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠137°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠163.4°. 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 7 July 2050 at 02:25 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 22 July 2050 at 20:27 in ♍ Virgo.

4 days after its descending node on 13 July 2050 at 14:19 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 July 2050 at 02:39 in ♏ Scorpio.

2 days after previous North standstill on 15 July 2050 at 23:05 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.446°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.346° in the next southern standstill on 30 July 2050 at 14:00 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
