Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1901" and ∠1908".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2088 after 16 days on 30 September 2088 at 15:25.
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 16:15 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1096 of Meeus index or 2049 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 42 minutes is the length of new lunation 1096. It is 3 hours shorter than next lunation 1097 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 7 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠37.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠62.5°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 10 September 2088 at 15:52 in ♋ Cancer. 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 23 September 2088 at 00:05 in ♑ Capricorn.

9 days after its descending node on 4 September 2088 at 19:26 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 September 2088 at 16:44 in ♎ Libra.

5 days after previous North standstill on 8 September 2088 at 17:54 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.985°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.905° in the next southern standstill on 22 September 2088 at 04:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
