Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Moon phase on 11 November 2057 Sunday is Full Moon, 15 days old Moon is in Taurus.Share this page: twitter facebook linkedin
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 ∠22° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1798" and ∠1939".
The Full Moon this days is the Beaver of November 2057.
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 715 of Meeus index or 1668 from Brown series.
Length of current 715 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 3 minutes. It is 3 minutes longer than next lunation 716 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 41 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 28 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠318.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠339°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 30 October 2057 at 17:10 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 November 2057 at 17:25 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 398 674 km (247 725 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 449 km (251 934 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 31 October 2057 at 13:39 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 14 November 2057 at 04:02 in ♊ Gemini.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 1 November 2057 at 16:37 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.406°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.485° in the next northern standstill on 15 November 2057 at 14:41 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
