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 ∠1782" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2042 after 13 days on 27 November 2042 at 06:06.
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 20:28 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 530 of Meeus index or 1483 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 1 minute is the length of new lunation 530. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes longer than next lunation 531 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 17 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 46 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠201.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠232°. 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 10 November 2042 at 12:15 in ♎ Libra. 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 25 November 2042 at 22:40 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 402 223 km (249 930 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 651 km (223 477 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 10 November 2042 at 01:54 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 24 November 2042 at 01:03 in ♈ Aries.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 1 November 2042 at 17:22 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.455°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.390° in the next southern standstill on 16 November 2042 at 08:09 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
