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 ∠1950" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2061 after 15 days on 1 August 2061 at 10:11.
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 18:03 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 760 of Meeus index or 1713 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 7 minutes is the length of new lunation 760. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 761 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠13.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠31.2°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 15 July 2061 at 03:23 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 July 2061 at 02:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 367 672 km (228 461 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 826 km (251 547 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 10 July 2061 at 03:50 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 July 2061 at 20:17 in ♎ Libra.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 15 July 2061 at 13:04 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.294°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.342° in the next southern standstill on 29 July 2061 at 09:52 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
