This Moon's phase for November 23, 2020, is a Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts around 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous, the moon will rise in the east in mid-afternoon and will be high in the eastern sky at sunset. The moon is then visible though most of the night sky setting a few hours before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word "gibbous" meaning humpbacked.
