The moon is waning now, two days past Tuesday's full "Hay Moon," or "Thunder Moon," if you prefer. That's the first full moon after the summer solstice. If you're up late tonight - after 11 p.m. - look for the moon low in the southeast. It will rise alongside the planet Jupiter, the brightest object (except for the moon) in that part of the sky. Neptune is there, too, but visible only by using a telescope.
