Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2071 after 14 days on 10 August 2071 at 23:39.
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 00:56 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 885 of Meeus index or 1838 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 20 minutes is the length of new lunation 885. It is 1 hour and 45 minutes shorter than next lunation 886 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 24 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 45 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠5.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠21.2°. 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 26 July 2071 at 17:22 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 8 August 2071 at 20:04 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 363 986 km (226 170 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 136 km (252 361 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 18 July 2071 at 04:18 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 July 2071 at 18:19 in ♍ Virgo.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 24 July 2071 at 19:33 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.332°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.284° in the next southern standstill on 6 August 2071 at 22:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
