Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1858" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2060 after 15 days on 12 August 2060 at 00:51.
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 12:49 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 749 of Meeus index or 1702 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 7 minutes is the length of new lunation 749. It is 2 hours and 50 minutes shorter than next lunation 750 length.
Length of current synodic month is 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠84.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠119.2°. 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 20 July 2060 at 04:58 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 August 2060 at 08:10 in ♎ Libra.

6 days after its ascending node on 20 July 2060 at 22:57 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 3 August 2060 at 14:41 in ♎ Libra.

2 days after previous North standstill on 25 July 2060 at 08:10 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.680°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.761° in the next southern standstill on 8 August 2060 at 17:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
