Crescent ♎ Libra
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1916" and ∠1907".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2053 after 15 days on 27 September 2053 at 21:50.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 09:36 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 664 of Meeus index or 1617 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 18 minutes. It is 2 hours and 44 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 1 hour and 26 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 43 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠43.5°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠71.2°.
2 days after point of perigee on 9 September 2053 at 15:22 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 21 September 2053 at 11:30 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 374 034 km (232 414 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 434 km (251 304 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♍ Virgo at 03:56 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 26 September 2053 at 11:14 in ♓ Pisces.
At 03:56 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
5 days since the previous standstill on 7 September 2053 at 03:16 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.322°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.328° at the point of next southern standstill on 20 September 2053 at 10:22 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
