Wednesday November 5th at 03:14 UT (4 November at 9:14 pm CST) our Moon will be crossing the plane of the ecliptic moving south. This is known as the descending node, one of two intersections the Moon’s orbital path (dark green line) has with the ecliptic.
Note the ecliptic is the line with ‘Apr’ however that is a reference to when the Sun will be at that point along the ecliptic and not the date for this node crossing.Look for the full Moon to rise at around local sunset time. It will then be visible all night, setting as the Sun rises.
