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 0.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1937" and ∠1943".
The Full Moon this days is the Beaver of November 2086.
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 1074 of Meeus index or 2027 from Brown series.
Length of current 1074 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 31 minutes longer than next lunation 1075 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠206.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠238°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 19 November 2086 at 08:15 in ♉ Taurus. 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 1 December 2086 at 07:42 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 370 086 km (229 961 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 341 km (251 867 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 04:47 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 5 December 2086 at 09:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 9 November 2086 at 06:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.623°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.622° in the next northern standstill on 22 November 2086 at 03:31 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
