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 ∠1931" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2052 after 16 days on 10 August 2052 at 12:52.
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 17:50 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 649 of Meeus index or 1602 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 41 minutes is the length of new lunation 649. 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°).
2 days 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 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 August 2052 at 05:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 371 114 km (230 600 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 407 km (251 287 mi).
7 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 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 July 2052 at 18:07 in ♎ Libra.
21 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 12 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.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
