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 ∠9° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1945".
The Full Moon this days is the Beaver of November 2061.
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 765 of Meeus index or 1718 from Brown series.
Length of current 765 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 53 minutes. It is 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 766 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠151.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠176.8°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 19:57, this is 12 days after last apogee on 15 November 2061 at 02:30 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 12 December 2061 at 07:27 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 357 101 km (221 892 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 407 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 255 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
4 days after its ascending node on 23 November 2061 at 11:10 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 5 December 2061 at 23:41 in ♎ Libra.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 15 November 2061 at 15:41 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.489°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.441° in the next northern standstill on 28 November 2061 at 23:49 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
