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.
Length of current 666 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 45 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 667 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠106.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠141.1°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 16 November 2053 at 03:37 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 November 2053 at 23:02 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 368 694 km (229 096 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 464 km (225 225 mi).
6 days after its descending node on 19 November 2053 at 23:07 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 December 2053 at 16:41 in ♍ Virgo.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 14 November 2053 at 03:32 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.637°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.707° in the next northern standstill on 27 November 2053 at 23:44 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
