Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1824" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2056 after 14 days on 26 July 2056 at 18:54.
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 20:20 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 699 of Meeus index or 1652 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 28 minutes is the length of new lunation 699. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes longer than next lunation 700 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 16 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 53 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠255.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠289.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
5 days after point of apogee on 7 July 2056 at 00:55 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 22 July 2056 at 11:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 392 956 km (244 172 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 056 km (228 699 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 21:09 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 25 July 2056 at 20:38 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 21:09 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
At 03:18 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠22.004°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-22.000° in its southern standstill point on 25 July 2056 at 04:24 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
