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 ∠11° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1897" and ∠1947".
The Full Moon this days is the Cold of December 2036.
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.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 456 of Meeus index or 1409 from Brown series.
Length of current 456 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 20 minutes. It is 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 457 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠76°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠113°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 25 November 2036 at 04:24 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 7 December 2036 at 01:52 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 377 841 km (234 780 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 178 km (228 154 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 23 November 2036 at 22:06 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 December 2036 at 14:24 in ♌ Leo.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 21 November 2036 at 10:22 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.497°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.561° in the next northern standstill on 5 December 2036 at 14:26 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
