Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1876" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2076 after 13 days on 10 December 2076 at 11:35.
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 11:28 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 951 of Meeus index or 1904 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 25 minutes is the length of new lunation 951. It is 1 hour and 33 minutes longer than next lunation 952 length.
Length of current synodic month is 41 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 22 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠290.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠319.3°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 18 November 2076 at 23:07 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 December 2076 at 16:17 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 382 171 km (237 470 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 627 km (229 676 mi).
13 days after its ascending node on 12 November 2076 at 22:52 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 November 2076 at 08:39 in ♐ Sagittarius.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 14 November 2076 at 19:07 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.085°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.107° in the next southern standstill on 29 November 2076 at 01:35 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
