Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1844" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2083 after 13 days on 27 August 2083 at 11:00.
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 12:45 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1034 of Meeus index or 1987 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 22 minutes is the length of new lunation 1034. It is 1 hour and 6 minutes longer than next lunation 1035 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 47 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠266.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠299.9°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 7 August 2083 at 03:44 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 22 August 2083 at 01:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 388 704 km (241 529 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 256 km (229 445 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 12 August 2083 at 13:29 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 August 2083 at 13:34 in ♒ Aquarius.

4 days after previous North standstill on 8 August 2083 at 19:08 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.955°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.925° in the next southern standstill on 22 August 2083 at 06:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
