Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1894" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2087 after 15 days on 14 August 2087 at 06:54.
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 18:20 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1083 of Meeus index or 2036 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 48 minutes is the length of new lunation 1083. It is 2 hours and 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 1084 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠62.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠95.4°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 25 July 2087 at 08:02 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 August 2087 at 16:39 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 378 465 km (235 167 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 051 km (251 066 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 24 July 2087 at 12:18 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 August 2087 at 01:46 in ♏ Scorpio.

3 days after previous North standstill on 26 July 2087 at 09:39 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.684°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.587° in the next southern standstill on 9 August 2087 at 10:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
