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 ∠14° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1938".
The Full Moon this days is the Beaver of November 2038.
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 480 of Meeus index or 1433 from Brown series.
Length of current 480 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter than next lunation 481 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 50 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 19 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠355.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠10.8°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 08:59, this is 13 days after last perigee on 28 October 2038 at 10:19 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 25 November 2038 at 22:45 in ♏ Scorpio.
This apogee Moon is 406 419 km (252 537 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 011 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 290 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
10 days after its descending node on 1 November 2038 at 00:41 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 November 2038 at 11:00 in ♋ Cancer.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 1 November 2038 at 16:10 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.732°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.829° in the next northern standstill on 16 November 2038 at 07:17 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
