Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1859" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2041 after 13 days on 7 December 2041 at 17:42.
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 17:37 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 518 of Meeus index or 1471 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 30 minutes is the length of new lunation 518. It is 1 hour and 54 minutes longer than next lunation 519 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 46 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 17 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠265.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠300.9°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 17 November 2041 at 10:08 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 December 2041 at 16:20 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 385 563 km (239 578 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 538 km (229 620 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 21 November 2041 at 17:04 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 December 2041 at 20:02 in ♈ Aries.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 11 November 2041 at 19:44 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.827°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.785° in the next southern standstill on 26 November 2041 at 07:01 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
