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 ∠20° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1903" and ∠1941".
The Full Moon this days is the Beaver of November 2062.
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 777 of Meeus index or 1730 from Brown series.
Length of current 777 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 28 minutes. It is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than next lunation 778 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 44 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 19 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠86.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠123°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 7 November 2062 at 23:42 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 November 2062 at 18:46 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 376 731 km (234 090 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 580 km (227 161 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 12 November 2062 at 01:21 in ♓ Pisces, 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 24 November 2062 at 21:08 in ♍ Virgo.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 5 November 2062 at 05:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.465°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.390° in the next northern standstill on 19 November 2062 at 04:48 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
