Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1937" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2066 after 14 days on 1 December 2066 at 19:16.
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 13:06 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 827 of Meeus index or 1780 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 12 minutes is the length of new lunation 827. It is 13 minutes longer than next lunation 828 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠328.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠346.7°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 7 November 2066 at 14:36 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 19 November 2066 at 10:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 370 054 km (229 941 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 077 km (224 984 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 6 November 2066 at 05:30 in ♋ Cancer, 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 19 November 2066 at 21:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 5 November 2066 at 05:38 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.974°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.944° in the next southern standstill on 19 November 2066 at 02:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
