Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2054 after 14 days on 18 August 2054 at 09:22.
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 17:48 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 675 of Meeus index or 1628 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 30 minutes is the length of new lunation 675. It is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 676 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠352.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠7.4°. 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°).
12 days after point of apogee on 22 July 2054 at 05:49 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 August 2054 at 04:47 in ♌ Leo.

12 days after its descending node on 22 July 2054 at 09:02 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 August 2054 at 20:23 in ♌ Leo.

2 days after previous North standstill on 1 August 2054 at 11:52 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.139°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.120° in the next southern standstill on 14 August 2054 at 09:17 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
