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 ∠6° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1955" and ∠1945".
The Full Moon this days is the Beaver of November 2088.
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 1099 of Meeus index or 2052 from Brown series.
Length of current 1099 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 20 minutes. It is 1 hour and 6 minutes shorter than next lunation 1100 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠131.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠160.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
10 days after point of apogee on 17 November 2088 at 14:57 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 November 2088 at 18:53 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 366 693 km (227 852 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 079 km (223 121 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 25 November 2088 at 20:19 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 December 2088 at 11:52 in ♎ Libra.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 15 November 2088 at 20:48 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.899°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.926° in the next northern standstill on 29 November 2088 at 15:58 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
