Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
The Full Moon on this date is the Beaver Moon of November.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.92% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1794" and ∠1941".
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 171 of Meeus index or 1124 from Brown series.
Length of current 171 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 32 minutes. It is 40 minutes longer than next lunation 172.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠315°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly is ∠336.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months decreases since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0°or∠360°).
12 days after point of perigee on 6 November 2013 at 09:28, lunar orbit gets wider while the Moon moves outward the Earth. It keeps this direction for next 3 days until it gets to the point of apogee on 22 November 2013 at 09:50.
Moon is 399 629 km (248 318 mi) away from Earth on this date. At previous perigee point before 12 days, distance is 365 362 km (227 025 mi). Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance reaches 405 446 km (251 932 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 16 November 2013 at 05:30, the Moon follows the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days untill it crosses the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 November 2013 at 16:59.
15 days after its beginning, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of current draconic month.
12 days after previous South standstill on 6 November 2013 at 06:43, when Moon reaches southern declination of ∠-19.511°, lunar orbit moves northward for the next 1 day to face North declination of ∠19.534° in the next northern standstill on 19 November 2013 at 17:18.
The Moon is in Full Moon opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
