Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1815" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2086 after 13 days on 20 December 2086 at 08:19.
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 05:48 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1075 of Meeus index or 2028 from Brown series.
29 days, 16 hours and 23 minutes is the length of new lunation 1075. It is 2 hours and 23 minutes longer than next lunation 1076 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 39 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 24 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠238°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠275.9°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 1 December 2086 at 07:42 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 December 2086 at 09:07 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 395 012 km (245 449 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 768 km (227 278 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 5 December 2086 at 09:54 in ♐ Sagittarius, 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 18 December 2086 at 14:55 in ♉ Taurus.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 12:31 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-21.623°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2086. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠21.627° in its northern standstill point on 19 December 2086 at 14:19 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
