Gibbous ♊ 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 ∠12° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1944" and ∠1945".
The Full Moon this days is the Beaver of November 2053.
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 666 of Meeus index or 1619 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 45 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 2 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠106.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠141.1°.
10 days after point of apogee on 16 November 2053 at 03:37 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 27 November 2053 at 23:02 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 368 694 km (229 096 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 464 km (225 225 mi).
6 days after descending node on 19 November 2053 at 23:07 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 2 December 2053 at 16:41 in ♍ Virgo.
20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 14 November 2053 at 03:32 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.637°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠18.707° at the point of next northern standstill on 27 November 2053 at 23:44 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
