Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1790" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2097 after 15 days on 19 December 2097 at 00:04.
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 19:26 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1211 of Meeus index or 2164 from Brown series.
29 days, 19 hours and 6 minutes is the length of new lunation 1211. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2097. It is 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 1212 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 22 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 41 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠145.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠172.3°. 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°).
12 days after point of perigee on 21 November 2097 at 08:58 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 December 2097 at 05:05 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 400 427 km (248 814 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 180 km (252 389 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 30 November 2097 at 14:46 in ♎ Libra, 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 15 December 2097 at 04:28 in ♉ Taurus.

11 days after previous North standstill on 22 November 2097 at 02:03 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.924°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.873° in the next southern standstill on 5 December 2097 at 17:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
