Moon phase on 11 November 2076 Wednesday 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.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1876" and ∠1939".
The Full Moon this days is the Beaver of November 2076.
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 950 of Meeus index or 1903 from Brown series.
Length of current 950 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 38 minutes. It is 1 hour and 13 minutes longer than next lunation 951 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 54 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 9 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠254.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠290.9°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 6 November 2076 at 20:15 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 November 2076 at 23:07 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 382 130 km (237 445 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 391 km (251 277 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 31 October 2076 at 02:13 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 November 2076 at 22:52 in ♊ Gemini.
25 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 2076 at 19:09 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.032°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.085° in the next northern standstill on 14 November 2076 at 19:07 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
