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 ∠3° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1946".
The Full Moon this days is the Beaver of November 2096.
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 1198 of Meeus index or 2151 from Brown series.
Length of current 1198 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 30 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2096. It is 36 minutes longer than next lunation 1199 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 46 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 17 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠169.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠194.2°. 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 19:43, this is 13 days after last apogee on 16 November 2096 at 05:04 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 13 December 2096 at 05:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 356 609 km (221 587 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2096. It is 5 899 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 184 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 28 November 2096 at 18:48 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 December 2096 at 02:27 in ♏ Scorpio.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 18 November 2096 at 19:29 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.983°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.962° in the next northern standstill on 1 December 2096 at 20:29 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
