Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1911" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2049 after 13 days on 9 December 2049 at 07:28.
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 05:35 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 617 of Meeus index or 1570 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 16 minutes is the length of new lunation 617. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than next lunation 618 length.
Length of current synodic month is 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠310.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠332.9°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 16 November 2049 at 15:07 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 November 2049 at 11:08 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 374 999 km (233 014 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 491 km (227 727 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 00:12 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 7 December 2049 at 22:33 in ♉ Taurus.
At 00:12 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
13 days after previous North standstill on 12 November 2049 at 00:36 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.270°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.274° in the next southern standstill on 26 November 2049 at 06:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
