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 ∠1825" and ∠1899".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2060 after 15 days on 10 September 2060 at 09:44.
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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 15 August 2060 at 06:57 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 31 August 2060 at 02:25 in ♏ Scorpio.

8 days after its ascending node on 16 August 2060 at 23:52 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 30 August 2060 at 17:20 in ♎ Libra.

3 days after previous North standstill on 21 August 2060 at 13:52 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.843°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.952° in the next southern standstill on 5 September 2060 at 02:26 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
