Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1954" and ∠1899".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2071 after 15 days on 9 September 2071 at 14:51.
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 08:16 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 886 of Meeus index or 1839 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 5 minutes is the length of new lunation 886. It is 2 hours and 23 minutes shorter than next lunation 887 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 39 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 30 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠21.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠40.7°. 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 24 August 2071 at 01:45 in ♌ Leo. 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 5 September 2071 at 06:50 in ♑ Capricorn.

11 days after its descending node on 14 August 2071 at 06:42 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 August 2071 at 02:29 in ♍ Virgo.

4 days after previous North standstill on 21 August 2071 at 05:18 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.210°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.164° in the next southern standstill on 3 September 2071 at 06:02 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
