Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1950" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2052 after 17 days on 10 August 2052 at 12:52.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 649 of Meeus index or 1602 from Brown series.
Length of current 649 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 55 minutes shorter than next lunation 650 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠23.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠43°. 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 2052 at 08:05 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 August 2052 at 05:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 367 619 km (228 428 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 407 km (251 287 mi).
6 days after its descending node on 17 July 2052 at 23:36 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 July 2052 at 18:07 in ♎ Libra.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 23 July 2052 at 14:42 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.413°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.346° in the next southern standstill on 6 August 2052 at 12:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 26 July 2052 at 01:31 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
