Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1805" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2085 after 17 days on 5 August 2085 at 17:29.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1057 of Meeus index or 2010 from Brown series.
Length of current 1057 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 3 minutes shorter than next lunation 1058 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 41 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 22 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠128.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠156.8°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 8 July 2085 at 19:46 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 July 2085 at 03:49 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 397 001 km (246 685 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 307 km (252 467 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 10:21 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 2 August 2085 at 20:43 in ♐ Sagittarius.

1 day after previous North standstill on 18 July 2085 at 08:40 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.116°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.052° in the next southern standstill on 1 August 2085 at 23:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 2 days on 21 July 2085 at 17:43 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
