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 first ∠3° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1874" and ∠1944".
The Full Moon this days is the Beaver of November 2045.
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 567 of Meeus index or 1520 from Brown series.
Length of current 567 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 52 minutes. It is 2 hours and 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 568 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 55 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠58.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠92.2°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 16 November 2045 at 23:59 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 November 2045 at 18:10 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 382 550 km (237 706 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 747 km (229 750 mi).
8 days after its ascending node on 16 November 2045 at 00:56 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 November 2045 at 17:44 in ♌ Leo.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 11 November 2045 at 15:22 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.320°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.257° in the next northern standstill on 25 November 2045 at 23:56 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
