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 ∠1795" and ∠1929".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2052 after 15 days on 6 November 2052 at 21:09.
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 15:03 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 653 of Meeus index or 1606 from Brown series.
29 days, 17 hours and 59 minutes is the length of new lunation 653. It is 1 hour and 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 654 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 15 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠138.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠165.7°. 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 10 October 2052 at 15:30 in ♉ Taurus. 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 26 October 2052 at 13:06 in ♐ Sagittarius.

1 day after its ascending node on 20 October 2052 at 15:02 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 November 2052 at 03:03 in ♈ Aries.

9 days after previous North standstill on 13 October 2052 at 10:12 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.174°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.228° in the next southern standstill on 27 October 2052 at 13:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
