Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1896" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2071 after 16 days on 7 November 2071 at 18:47.
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 17:21 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 887 of Meeus index or 1840 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 28 minutes is the length of new lunation 887. It is 2 hours and 42 minutes shorter than next lunation 888 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 16 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 53 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠40.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠67.5°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 18 October 2071 at 05:18 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 October 2071 at 19:30 in ♑ Capricorn.

1 day after its ascending node on 20 October 2071 at 21:10 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 November 2071 at 02:46 in ♓ Pisces.

7 days after previous North standstill on 14 October 2071 at 18:01 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.195°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.256° in the next southern standstill on 27 October 2071 at 22:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
