Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1913" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2072 after 15 days on 25 November 2072 at 16:59.
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 04:21 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 901 of Meeus index or 1854 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 38 minutes is the length of new lunation 901. It is 2 hours and 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 902 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 3 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠41.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠69°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 7 November 2072 at 14:09 in ♎ Libra. 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 19 November 2072 at 08:15 in ♓ Pisces.

5 days after its ascending node on 5 November 2072 at 06:42 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 November 2072 at 12:11 in ♓ Pisces.

9 days after previous North standstill on 31 October 2072 at 19:37 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.845°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.935° in the next southern standstill on 13 November 2072 at 14:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
