Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 9 July 2053 at 01:47.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2053 after 16 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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
13 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 July 2053 at 07:11 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 363 413 km (225 814 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 527 km (222 157 mi).
7 days 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 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 July 2053 at 09:41 in ♍ Virgo.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 09:16 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.467°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.438° in its southern standstill point on 27 July 2053 at 19:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day 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.
