November 11, 2023 Moon Phase: On this date, the Moon will be in a Waning Crescent phase. This phase is most visible in the western sky just before sunrise. During this phase, the Moon’s illumination is gradually decreasing each day until the New Moon.
At this point in the Moon’s cycle, it is moving closer to the Sun as seen from Earth, and only a small edge of the Moon is illuminated, with the night side facing the Earth.
This is an ideal time to observe the features of the Moon’s surface, as the craters and mountains along the illuminated portion cast long shadows, making them easier to see with a telescope or binoculars.

The Moon Phase on November 11th, 2023, is a Waning Crescent: During this phase, the Moon is less than 50% illuminated but has not yet reached 0% illumination, which would be a New Moon. In this part of the Moon’s cycle, it is moving closer to the Sun as observed from Earth, and the night side of the Moon is facing Earth, with a decreasingly thin crescent being illuminated.
The Waning Crescent Moon will rise around midnight, reach its highest point after sunrise, and set after noon. The best time to view this phase is 1-2 hours before sunrise when the features of the Moon’s surface can be observed. The illuminated crescent offers a view of the Moon’s craters and mountains, which cast long shadows.
The Waxing Gibbous phase, like all other Moon phases, lasts for slightly over 7 days. The actual duration can vary due to the elliptical shape of the Moon’s orbit. During this Waxing Gibbous phase, the Moon will rise in the east during the late afternoon and be high in the eastern sky at sunset.
Assuming clear skies, the Waxing Gibbous Moon will remain visible for most of the night before setting shortly before sunrise. Fun fact: The illuminated side of a waning crescent Moon always faces eastward, towards the sunrise.
