Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1818" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2062 after 15 days on 16 December 2062 at 08:17.
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 23:01 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 778 of Meeus index or 1731 from Brown series.
29 days, 17 hours and 56 minutes is the length of new lunation 778. It is 1 hour and 30 minutes shorter than next lunation 779 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 12 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠123°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠154.3°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 19 November 2062 at 18:46 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 December 2062 at 19:32 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 394 238 km (244 968 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 405 km (251 907 mi).
5 days after its descending node on 24 November 2062 at 21:08 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 December 2062 at 04:14 in ♓ Pisces.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 19 November 2062 at 04:48 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.390°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.324° in the next southern standstill on 2 December 2062 at 12:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
