Crescent ♍ Virgo
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2072 after 14 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 01:21 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 898 of Meeus index or 1851 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 46 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 58 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠350.4°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠5.6°.
Moon is at perigee at 14:59. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 1 August 2072 at 19:10 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 29 August 2072 at 00:37 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 357 834 km (222 348 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 674 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 522 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
12 days after descending node on 1 August 2072 at 17:10 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 15 August 2072 at 05:10 in ♍ Virgo.
26 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 10 August 2072 at 21:36 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.592°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.564° at the point of next southern standstill on 23 August 2072 at 14:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
