Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1839" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2100 after 13 days on 21 July 2100 at 10:12.
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 12:06 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1243 of Meeus index or 2196 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 55 minutes is the length of new lunation 1243. It is 1 hour and 7 minutes longer than next lunation 1244 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 20 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠261°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠294.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
6 days after point of apogee on 1 July 2100 at 09:51 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 16 July 2100 at 14:15 in ♏ Scorpio.

10 days after its ascending node on 27 June 2100 at 05:37 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 July 2100 at 12:42 in ♍ Virgo.

1 day after previous North standstill on 6 July 2100 at 01:14 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.198°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.246° in the next southern standstill on 19 July 2100 at 03:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
