This November 2015 New Moon falls at 19°00′ , in Scorpio. This moon will line up with the star Zubeneschamali, the brightest star in the constellation Libra. Once called the Northern Claw of the Scorpion (Arabic), this star is also known as Lanx Borealis, or Beta Libra, and inhabits what we now know as the Southern Scale (Greek). This emerald colored star is visible to the naked eye, especially tonight, while the sky is dark as the moon shares the same side of the Earth as the Sun.
