Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2072 after 15 days on 28 August 2072 at 15:59.
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 17:56 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 897 of Meeus index or 1850 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 25 minutes is the length of new lunation 897. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2072. It is 21 minutes shorter than next lunation 898 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 19 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 50 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠333.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠350.4°. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 1 August 2072 at 19:10 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 August 2072 at 14:59 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 364 935 km (226 760 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 834 km (222 348 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 1 August 2072 at 17:10 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 15 August 2072 at 05:10 in ♍ Virgo.
25 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 10 August 2072 at 21:36 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.592°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.564° in the next southern standstill on 23 August 2072 at 14:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
