Moon ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 7 August 2053 at 10:25.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2053 after 16 days on 29 August 2053 at 07:53.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 662 of Meeus index or 1615 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 15 minutes. It is 1 hour and 40 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 29 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 40 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠7.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠23.3°.
Moon is at perigee at 14:58. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 28 July 2053 at 06:44 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 24 August 2053 at 18:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
This perigee Moon is 360 223 km (223 832 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 285 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 133 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after descending node on 2 August 2053 at 22:15 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 15 August 2053 at 17:54 in ♍ Virgo.
24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 10 August 2053 at 19:35 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.377°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.341° at the point of next southern standstill on 24 August 2053 at 02:41 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 1 day on 14 August 2053 at 00:41 in ♌ Leo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
