Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2034 after 13 days on 25 December 2034 at 08:54.
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 20:14 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 432 of Meeus index or 1385 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 49 minutes is the length of new lunation 432. It is 1 hour and 30 minutes longer than next lunation 433 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠192.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠220.5°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 9 December 2034 at 10:00 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 24 December 2034 at 10:34 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 403 909 km (250 977 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 118 km (222 524 mi).
8 days after its ascending node on 3 December 2034 at 11:15 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 December 2034 at 02:21 in ♓ Pisces.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
13 days after previous North standstill on 27 November 2034 at 19:42 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.488°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.553° in the next southern standstill on 12 December 2034 at 00:24 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
