Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1904" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2093 after 14 days on 2 December 2093 at 22:24.
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 19:58 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1161 of Meeus index or 2114 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 50 minutes is the length of new lunation 1161. It is 32 minutes longer than next lunation 1162 length.
Length of current synodic month is 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠314.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠335.6°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 9 November 2093 at 23:18 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 November 2093 at 17:56 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 376 374 km (233 868 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 650 km (227 204 mi).
9 days after its ascending node on 8 November 2093 at 15:46 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 November 2093 at 07:46 in ♑ Capricorn.

10 days after previous North standstill on 8 November 2093 at 02:08 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.330°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.406° in the next southern standstill on 21 November 2093 at 22:15 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
