Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
The Full Moon on this date is the Beaver Moon of November.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.44% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1781" and ∠1938".
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 146 of Meeus index or 1099 from Brown series.
Length of current 146 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 14 minutes. It is 1 hour and 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 147.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 30 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 39 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠5.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly is ∠21.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months increases since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
2 days after point of apogee on 8 November 2011 at 13:20, lunar orbit gets closer while the Moon moves inward the Earth. It keeps this direction for next 12 days until it gets to the point of perigee on 23 November 2011 at 23:24.
Moon is 402 416 km (250 050 mi) away from Earth on this date. At previous apogee point before 2 days, distance is 406 177 km (252 387 mi). Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance reaches 359 692 km (223 502 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 29 October 2011 at 14:59, the Moon follows the northern part of its orbit for the next 1 day untill it crosses the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 November 2011 at 00:35.
12 days after its beginning, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of current draconic month.
12 days after previous South standstill on 29 October 2011 at 20:17, when Moon reaches southern declination of ∠-22.609°, lunar orbit moves northward for the next 1 day to face North declination of ∠22.558° in the next northern standstill on 13 November 2011 at 07:23.
The Moon is in Full Moon opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
