Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2087 after 14 days on 9 December 2087 at 22:31.
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 06:23 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1087 of Meeus index or 2040 from Brown series.
29 days, 19 hours and 19 minutes is the length of new lunation 1087. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2087. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes longer than next lunation 1088 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 35 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 28 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠183°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠208.8°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 24 November 2087 at 21:57 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 December 2087 at 08:50 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 405 370 km (251 885 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 237 km (221 977 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 23 November 2087 at 19:35 in ♏ Scorpio, 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 7 December 2087 at 19:31 in ♉ Taurus.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 12 November 2087 at 13:28 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.050°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.064° in the next southern standstill on 26 November 2087 at 15:53 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
