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 ∠21° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1937".
The Full Moon this days is the Beaver of November 2060.
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 752 of Meeus index or 1705 from Brown series.
Length of current 752 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 50 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2060. It is 26 minutes longer than next lunation 753 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 6 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 57 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠174.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠199.1°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 7 November 2060 at 22:11 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 November 2060 at 01:49 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 363 718 km (226 004 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 318 km (252 474 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 7 November 2060 at 00:56 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 20 November 2060 at 10:05 in ♎ Libra.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 29 October 2060 at 17:05 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.126°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.098° in the next northern standstill on 11 November 2060 at 10:15 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
