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 ∠1808" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2044 after 15 days on 4 December 2044 at 23:34.
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 14:58 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 555 of Meeus index or 1508 from Brown series.
29 days, 17 hours and 55 minutes is the length of new lunation 555. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes shorter than next lunation 556 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 11 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 52 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠126.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠156.9°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 8 November 2044 at 06:14 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 November 2044 at 06:42 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 396 415 km (246 321 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 513 km (251 974 mi).
5 days after its descending node on 13 November 2044 at 12:05 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 November 2044 at 20:02 in ♓ Pisces.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 8 November 2044 at 11:13 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.171°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.089° in the next southern standstill on 21 November 2044 at 22:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
