Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1898" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2092 after 8 days on 13 December 2092 at 21:59.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1149 of Meeus index or 2102 from Brown series.
Length of current 1149 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 34 minutes. It is 38 minutes shorter than next lunation 1150 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 59 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠350.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠6.2°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 29 November 2092 at 18:22 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 14 December 2092 at 04:05 in ♊ Gemini.

2 days after its descending node on 3 December 2092 at 03:12 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 December 2092 at 11:56 in ♌ Leo.

4 days after previous South standstill on 1 December 2092 at 09:35 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.787°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.845° in the next northern standstill on 15 December 2092 at 10:59 in ♋ Cancer.
After 8 days on 13 December 2092 at 21:59 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
