Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1803" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2086 after 15 days on 24 August 2086 at 17:25.
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 10:38 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1071 of Meeus index or 2024 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 39 minutes is the length of new lunation 1071. It is 2 hours shorter than next lunation 1072 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 55 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 8 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠129.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠157.5°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 29 July 2086 at 01:59 in ♓ Pisces. 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 13 August 2086 at 21:28 in ♎ Libra.

5 days after its descending node on 4 August 2086 at 08:12 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 August 2086 at 19:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.

4 days after previous North standstill on 4 August 2086 at 20:25 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.322°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.198° in the next southern standstill on 19 August 2086 at 11:08 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
