Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1950" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2097 after 15 days on 22 August 2097 at 23:52.
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 16:00 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1207 of Meeus index or 2160 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 34 minutes is the length of new lunation 1207. It is 2 hours and 38 minutes shorter than next lunation 1208 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 59 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠26.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠47.4°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 6 August 2097 at 01:35 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 August 2097 at 03:05 in ♑ Capricorn.

6 days after its ascending node on 31 July 2097 at 21:54 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 August 2097 at 12:51 in ♏ Scorpio.

2 days after previous North standstill on 5 August 2097 at 00:09 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.559°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.633° in the next southern standstill on 18 August 2097 at 11:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
