Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1854" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2049 after 14 days on 9 November 2049 at 15:38.
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 16:15 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 616 of Meeus index or 1569 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 21 minutes is the length of new lunation 616. It is 1 hour and 5 minutes longer than next lunation 617 length.
Length of current synodic month is 37 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 26 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠278.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠310.2°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 19 October 2049 at 18:32 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 November 2049 at 18:03 in ♒ Aquarius.

10 days after previous North standstill on 15 October 2049 at 15:55 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.344°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.292° in the next southern standstill on 29 October 2049 at 23:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
