Crescent ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 4 October 2053 at 23:01.
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 ∠16° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1928" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2053 after 17 days on 27 October 2053 at 10:38.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is 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.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠43.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠71.2°.
3 days after point of perigee on 6 October 2053 at 10:09 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 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 19 October 2053 at 07:14 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 371 751 km (230 995 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 289 km (251 214 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♍ Virgo at 12:15 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 23 October 2053 at 18:33 in ♓ Pisces.
At 12:15 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
5 days since the previous standstill on 4 October 2053 at 08:58 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.380°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.447° at the point of next southern standstill on 17 October 2053 at 18:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 2 days on 11 October 2053 at 20:53 in ♎ Libra 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.
