Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2079 after 14 days on 14 July 2079 at 03:24.
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 01:31 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 983 of Meeus index or 1936 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 2 minutes is the length of new lunation 983. It is 1 hour and 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 984 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 42 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 27 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠12°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠28.8°. 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 28 June 2079 at 08:30 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 July 2079 at 01:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.

5 days after its ascending node on 24 June 2079 at 10:51 in ♈ Aries, 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 7 July 2079 at 02:33 in ♎ Libra.

1 day after previous North standstill on 28 June 2079 at 21:27 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.935°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.936° in the next southern standstill on 12 July 2079 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
