Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2030 after 14 days on 9 December 2030 at 22:40.
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 06:46 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 382 of Meeus index or 1335 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 46 minutes is the length of new lunation 382. It is 13 minutes shorter than next lunation 383 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 58 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 11 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠349.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠5.3°. 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 21:07, this is 12 days after last apogee on 13 November 2030 at 05:00 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 10 December 2030 at 10:03 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 357 521 km (222 153 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 987 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 835 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♏ Scorpio at 13:32 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 9 December 2030 at 01:17 in ♊ Gemini.
At 13:32 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
12 days after previous North standstill on 12 November 2030 at 16:17 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.904°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.903° in the next southern standstill on 26 November 2030 at 06:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
