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 ∠1972" and ∠1916".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2046 after 15 days on 14 October 2046 at 23:41.
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 18:25 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 577 of Meeus index or 1530 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 1 minute is the length of new lunation 577. It is 52 minutes shorter than next lunation 578 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 25 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠345.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠1.2°. 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°).
13 days after point of apogee on 16 September 2046 at 10:11 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 September 2046 at 00:48 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 363 428 km (225 824 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 939 km (221 792 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 25 September 2046 at 17:54 in ♋ Cancer, 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 8 October 2046 at 06:47 in ♒ Aquarius.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 22 September 2046 at 15:17 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.482°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.388° in the next southern standstill on 5 October 2046 at 04:08 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
