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 ∠4° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1944".
The Full Moon this days is the Beaver of November 2083.
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 1037 of Meeus index or 1990 from Brown series.
Length of current 1037 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 10 minutes. It is 42 minutes shorter than next lunation 1038 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 34 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 35 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠343.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠359.3°. 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°).
13 days after point of perigee on 10 November 2083 at 19:25 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 November 2083 at 20:43 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 404 913 km (251 601 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 373 km (252 508 mi).
9 days after its ascending node on 14 November 2083 at 20:37 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 November 2083 at 06:19 in ♌ Leo.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 12 November 2083 at 02:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.371°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.301° in the next northern standstill on 25 November 2083 at 23:27 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
