Moon phase on 10 November 2087 Monday is Full Moon, 14 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.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1938".
The Full Moon this days is the Beaver of November 2087.
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 1086 of Meeus index or 2039 from Brown series.
Length of current 1086 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 54 minutes. It is 25 minutes shorter than next lunation 1087 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠158.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠183°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 19:54, this is 13 days after last apogee on 28 October 2087 at 19:16 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 24 November 2087 at 21:57 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 356 890 km (221 761 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2087. It is 5 618 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 465 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♉ Taurus at 08:32 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 23 November 2087 at 19:35 in ♏ Scorpio.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 30 October 2087 at 09:37 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.046°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.050° in the next northern standstill on 12 November 2087 at 13:28 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
