Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1910" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2052 after 15 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 01:31 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 650 of Meeus index or 1603 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 36 minutes is the length of new lunation 650. It is 2 hours and 50 minutes shorter than next lunation 651 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠43°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠69.9°. 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°).
3 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 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 August 2052 at 05:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 375 344 km (233 228 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 407 km (251 287 mi).
8 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 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 July 2052 at 18:07 in ♎ Libra.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 23 July 2052 at 14:42 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.413°. Next 11 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.
