The Moon phase for November 6th, 2023, is the 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 lunar cycle, the Moon is progressively moving closer to the Sun as seen from Earth, and the night side of the Moon faces Earth with a thinning crescent of illumination.
The Waning Crescent Moon, which appears to shrink, will rise around midnight, reach the highest point in the sky after sunrise, and set after noon. The best time to view this phase is 1-2 hours before sunrise, providing an excellent opportunity to observe the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the illuminated crescent, you can see the craters and mountains of the Moon casting long shadows.
The Waxing Gibbous phase, like all moon phases, lasts just over 7 days. The actual duration varies due to the Moon’s elliptical-shaped orbit.
During the Waxing Gibbous phase, the Moon rises in the east in the mid- to late-afternoon and remains high in the eastern sky until sunset. Assuming clear skies, the Waxing Gibbous moon will remain visible for most of the night, setting shortly before sunrise. Fun fact: the illuminated side of a waning crescent moon always faces eastward, towards the sunrise.
