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 first ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1938" and ∠1946".
The Full Moon this days is the Beaver of November 2077.
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 963 of Meeus index or 1916 from Brown series.
Length of current 963 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 6 minutes. It is 1 hour and 58 minutes longer than next lunation 964 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 22 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 41 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠222.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠258.6°. 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 27 November 2077 at 16:38 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 December 2077 at 10:56 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 369 929 km (229 863 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 827 km (251 548 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 05:49 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 13 December 2077 at 09:35 in ♏ Scorpio.
At 05:49 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
10 days after previous South standstill on 19 November 2077 at 07:28 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.504°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.488° in the next northern standstill on 2 December 2077 at 01:46 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
