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 ∠1779" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2085 after 15 days on 5 August 2085 at 17:29.
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 17:43 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1058 of Meeus index or 2011 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 28 minutes is the length of new lunation 1058. It is 28 minutes shorter than next lunation 1059 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 44 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 19 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠156.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠180.2°. 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°).
12 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 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 July 2085 at 03:49 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 402 909 km (250 356 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 307 km (252 467 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 19 July 2085 at 10:21 in ♋ Cancer, 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 2 August 2085 at 20:43 in ♐ Sagittarius.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 18 July 2085 at 08:40 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.116°. Next 11 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.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
