Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 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.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1845" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2053 after 23 days on 30 July 2053 at 17:06.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 20 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°).
6 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 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 July 2053 at 07:11 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 388 443 km (241 367 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 527 km (222 157 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 6 July 2053 at 19:46 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 July 2053 at 09:41 in ♍ Virgo.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 30 June 2053 at 12:07 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.513°. Next 6 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 8 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.
