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 ∠9° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1949" and ∠1945".
The Full Moon this days is the Beaver of November 2042.
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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 530 of Meeus index or 1483 from Brown series.
Length of current 530 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes longer than next lunation 531 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 17 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 46 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠201.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠232°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
1 day after point of perigee on 25 November 2042 at 22:40 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 8 December 2042 at 00:37 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 367 718 km (228 489 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 435 km (251 926 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 24 November 2042 at 01:03 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 December 2042 at 05:37 in ♎ Libra.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 16 November 2042 at 08:09 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.390°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.344° in the next northern standstill on 29 November 2042 at 03:21 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
