Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Full Moon is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 100%. The 14 days old Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
* The exact date and time of this Full Moon phase is on 19 November 2059 at 13:09 UTC.
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♊ Gemini later.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1927" and ∠1942".
The Full Moon this days is the Beaver of November 2059.
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 740 of Meeus index or 1693 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 38 minutes. It is 1 hour and 47 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 54 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 9 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠225.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠262.2°.
2 days after point of perigee on 17 November 2059 at 04:17 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 28 November 2059 at 22:30 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 372 022 km (231 164 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 737 km (251 492 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 18 November 2059 at 20:56 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 3 December 2059 at 01:20 in ♏ Scorpio.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 9 November 2059 at 16:49 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.235°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.219° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 November 2059 at 10:36 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
