Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2060 after 14 days on 7 December 2060 at 14:48.
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 04:16 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 753 of Meeus index or 1706 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 24 minutes is the length of new lunation 753. It is 1 hour and 47 minutes longer than next lunation 754 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 40 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 23 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠199.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠228.7°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 21 November 2060 at 01:49 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 December 2060 at 09:57 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 403 423 km (250 675 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 223 km (223 211 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 20 November 2060 at 10:05 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 December 2060 at 10:07 in ♈ Aries.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 11 November 2060 at 10:15 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.098°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.046° in the next southern standstill on 25 November 2060 at 22:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
