Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2038 after 15 days on 11 December 2038 at 17:30.
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 13:47 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 481 of Meeus index or 1434 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 15 minutes is the length of new lunation 481. It is 1 hour and 19 minutes shorter than next lunation 482 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 29 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 40 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠28.2°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 25 November 2038 at 22:45 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 8 December 2038 at 13:35 in ♉ Taurus.

11 days after its ascending node on 15 November 2038 at 11:00 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 28 November 2038 at 08:54 in ♑ Capricorn.

10 days after previous North standstill on 16 November 2038 at 07:17 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.829°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.865° in the next southern standstill on 29 November 2038 at 02:24 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
