Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1952" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2094 after 14 days on 1 January 2094 at 16:51.
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 07:47 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1162 of Meeus index or 2115 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 18 minutes is the length of new lunation 1162. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2093. It is 40 minutes longer than next lunation 1163 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 26 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 43 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠335.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠352.5°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 7 December 2093 at 19:07 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 December 2093 at 18:42 in ♑ Capricorn.

12 days after its ascending node on 5 December 2093 at 20:16 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 December 2093 at 15:25 in ♑ Capricorn.

13 days after previous North standstill on 5 December 2093 at 10:39 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.462°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.474° in the next southern standstill on 19 December 2093 at 08:08 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
