Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1812" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2067 after 13 days on 22 October 2067 at 10:56.
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 09:28 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 838 of Meeus index or 1791 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 46 minutes is the length of new lunation 838. It is 55 minutes longer than next lunation 839 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 2 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 1 minute shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠237.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠274.8°. 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 3 October 2067 at 12:21 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 October 2067 at 10:41 in ♓ Pisces.

9 days after previous North standstill on 28 September 2067 at 17:33 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.519°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.403° in the next southern standstill on 13 October 2067 at 06:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
