Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1903" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2081 after 15 days on 16 December 2081 at 04:31.
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 14:36 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1013 of Meeus index or 1966 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 52 minutes is the length of new lunation 1013. It is 2 hours and 26 minutes shorter than next lunation 1014 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 55 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠52.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠84.8°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 27 November 2081 at 03:46 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 9 December 2081 at 00:48 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 376 595 km (234 005 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 288 km (251 213 mi).
6 days after its descending node on 24 November 2081 at 11:52 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 December 2081 at 17:00 in ♓ Pisces.
19 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 2081 at 01:19 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.201°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.151° in the next southern standstill on 1 December 2081 at 21:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
