The same sign
combination as shown last in the entry above, but with the circles in

astronomy. This phenomenon means that the opposition of the sun and
the moon (i.e. the full moon) is exact also in declination. Then the
surface of the moon is totally in the shadow of the earth. Usually,
when the moon is full, it moves either slightly above or below the

where the moon is in exact opposition to the sun, is also one of the
moon's nodes, or .
