Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1837" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2032 after 15 days on 16 December 2032 at 20:49.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 406 of Meeus index or 1359 from Brown series.
Length of current 406 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 8 minutes. It is 1 hour and 44 minutes longer than next lunation 407 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 24 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 39 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠248.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠286.1°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 25 November 2032 at 14:16 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 December 2032 at 19:18 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 390 292 km (242 516 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 105 km (229 973 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 29 November 2032 at 16:30 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 December 2032 at 17:34 in ♈ Aries.

12 days after previous North standstill on 19 November 2032 at 06:10 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.095°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.128° in the next southern standstill on 3 December 2032 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 2 December 2032 at 20:53 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
