Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1833" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2027 after 15 days on 13 December 2027 at 16:09.
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 03:24 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 345 of Meeus index or 1298 from Brown series.
29 days, 16 hours and 48 minutes is the length of new lunation 345. It is 2 hours and 12 minutes shorter than next lunation 346 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 4 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 59 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠96°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠132.4°. 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 19 November 2027 at 00:10 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 December 2027 at 08:42 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 391 146 km (243 047 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 663 km (251 446 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 19 November 2027 at 08:34 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 December 2027 at 19:38 in ♑ Capricorn.

12 days after previous North standstill on 16 November 2027 at 07:40 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.619°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.574° in the next southern standstill on 29 November 2027 at 09:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
