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 ∠1870" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2078 after 15 days on 23 August 2078 at 08:11.
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 19:52 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 972 of Meeus index or 1925 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 7 minutes is the length of new lunation 972. It is 3 hours shorter than next lunation 973 length.
Length of current synodic month is 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠80.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠115.1°. 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°).
6 days after point of perigee on 1 August 2078 at 02:41 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 14 August 2078 at 20:09 in ♏ Scorpio.

6 days after its ascending node on 1 August 2078 at 08:13 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 August 2078 at 22:47 in ♏ Scorpio.

2 days after previous North standstill on 5 August 2078 at 00:22 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.132°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.225° in the next southern standstill on 19 August 2078 at 07:52 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
