Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2089 after 14 days on 21 August 2089 at 06:16.
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 08:28 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1108 of Meeus index or 2061 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 30 minutes is the length of new lunation 1108. It is 1 hour and 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 1109 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠3.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠19.1°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 03:33, this is 13 days after last apogee on 23 July 2089 at 06:57 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 19 August 2089 at 09:33 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 357 246 km (221 982 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2089. It is 5 262 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 821 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
8 days after its descending node on 28 July 2089 at 12:48 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 10 August 2089 at 02:59 in ♎ Libra.

3 days after previous North standstill on 3 August 2089 at 05:21 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.449°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.382° in the next southern standstill on 16 August 2089 at 02:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
