Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2062 after 14 days on 20 August 2062 at 03:55.
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 00:40 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 774 of Meeus index or 1727 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 2 minutes is the length of new lunation 774. It is 2 hours and 5 minutes shorter than next lunation 775 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 42 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 27 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠14°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠31.5°. 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 4 August 2062 at 04:41 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 August 2062 at 18:05 in ♑ Capricorn.

10 days after its ascending node on 26 July 2062 at 00:55 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 August 2062 at 17:38 in ♍ Virgo.

3 days after previous North standstill on 2 August 2062 at 02:58 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.542°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.592° in the next southern standstill on 15 August 2062 at 06:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
