Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1944" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2099 after 15 days on 27 November 2099 at 21:22.
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 11:29 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1235 of Meeus index or 2188 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 40 minutes is the length of new lunation 1235. It is 2 hours and 7 minutes shorter than next lunation 1236 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠27.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠49.8°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 10 November 2099 at 19:35 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 November 2099 at 17:25 in ♓ Pisces.

3 days after its descending node on 8 November 2099 at 18:31 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 November 2099 at 23:18 in ♓ Pisces.

10 days after previous North standstill on 2 November 2099 at 11:20 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.524°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.455° in the next southern standstill on 15 November 2099 at 04:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
