Moon ♊ 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 ∠23° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1840" and ∠1942".
The Full Moon this days is the Beaver of November 2040.
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 505 of Meeus index or 1458 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 37 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 7 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 2 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠297°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠323.5°.
9 days after point of perigee on 9 November 2040 at 06:17 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 24 November 2040 at 19:12 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 389 450 km (241 993 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 6 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 851 km (251 563 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 14:37 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 3 December 2040 at 01:02 in ♏ Scorpio.
At 14:37 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
9 days since the previous standstill on 8 November 2040 at 17:47 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.814°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.813° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 November 2040 at 02:56 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
