Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2096 after 14 days on 29 November 2096 at 21:34.
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 00:35 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1198 of Meeus index or 2151 from Brown series.
29 days, 19 hours and 30 minutes is the length of new lunation 1198. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2096. It is 36 minutes longer than next lunation 1199 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 46 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 17 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠169.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠194.2°. 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°).
14 days after point of perigee on 1 November 2096 at 07:33 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 November 2096 at 05:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 405 390 km (251 898 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 511 km (252 594 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 14 November 2096 at 20:36 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 November 2096 at 18:48 in ♉ Taurus.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 4 November 2096 at 10:38 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.978°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.983° in the next southern standstill on 18 November 2096 at 19:29 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
