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 ∠1969" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2058 after 15 days on 9 January 2058 at 20:39.
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 14:22 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 716 of Meeus index or 1669 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 1 minute is the length of new lunation 716. It is 8 minutes longer than next lunation 717 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 25 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠339°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠355.4°. 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°).
12 days after point of apogee on 13 December 2057 at 06:08 in ♋ Cancer. 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 26 December 2057 at 07:44 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 364 038 km (226 203 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 883 km (221 757 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 08:50 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 7 January 2058 at 16:37 in ♊ Gemini.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 12 December 2057 at 21:42 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.523°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.515° in the next southern standstill on 26 December 2057 at 12:09 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
