Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1778" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2061 after 14 days on 27 November 2061 at 06:32.
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 03:40 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 765 of Meeus index or 1718 from Brown series.
29 days, 18 hours and 53 minutes is the length of new lunation 765. It is 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 766 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠151.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠176.8°. 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°).
13 days after point of perigee on 30 October 2061 at 10:28 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 November 2061 at 02:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 403 190 km (250 531 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 329 km (252 481 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 8 November 2061 at 21:38 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 23 November 2061 at 11:10 in ♈ Aries.

10 days after previous North standstill on 1 November 2061 at 14:48 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.559°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.489° in the next southern standstill on 15 November 2061 at 15:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
