Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.

Lunar disc appears visually 8.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2062 after 7 days on 16 November 2062 at 20:48.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 777 of Meeus index or 1730 from Brown series.
Length of current 777 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 28 minutes. It is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than next lunation 778 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 44 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 19 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠86.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠123°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 7 November 2062 at 23:42 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 November 2062 at 18:46 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 404 230 km (251 177 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 580 km (227 161 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 28 October 2062 at 19:18 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 November 2062 at 01:21 in ♓ Pisces.

4 days after previous South standstill on 5 November 2062 at 05:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.465°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.390° in the next northern standstill on 19 November 2062 at 04:48 in ♊ Gemini.
After 7 days on 16 November 2062 at 20:48 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
