Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 1 July 2053 at 02:01.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1824" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2053 after 24 days on 30 July 2053 at 17:06.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 661 of Meeus index or 1614 from Brown series.
Length of current 661 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 35 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2053. It is 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 662 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 9 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month and it is the shortest synodic month length of a for 21st century.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠352.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠7.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
5 days after point of apogee on 1 July 2053 at 02:40 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 July 2053 at 07:11 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 392 949 km (244 167 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 527 km (222 157 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♓ Pisces at 19:46 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 19 July 2053 at 09:41 in ♍ Virgo.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 30 June 2053 at 12:07 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.513°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.467° in the next northern standstill on 14 July 2053 at 09:16 in ♋ Cancer.
After 9 days on 15 July 2053 at 17:26 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
