Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1841" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2068 after 15 days on 15 July 2068 at 02:07.
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 15:11 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 847 of Meeus index or 1800 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 43 minutes is the length of new lunation 847. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 848 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠99.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠133.3°. 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 20 June 2068 at 10:58 in ♓ Pisces. 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 5 July 2068 at 16:27 in ♍ Virgo.

2 days after its descending node on 26 June 2068 at 20:13 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 July 2068 at 06:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.

1 day after previous North standstill on 28 June 2068 at 02:09 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.448°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.401° in the next southern standstill on 12 July 2068 at 14:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
