Gibbous ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 19 October 2053 at 16:54.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1845" and ∠1930".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2053 after 1 day on 27 October 2053 at 10:38.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 665 of Meeus index or 1618 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 2 minutes. It is 2 hours and 43 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 18 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 45 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠71.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠106.8°.
6 days after point of apogee on 19 October 2053 at 07:14 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 31 October 2053 at 10:02 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 388 452 km (241 373 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 005 km (228 668 mi).
1 day after descending node on 23 October 2053 at 18:33 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 5 November 2053 at 16:13 in ♍ Virgo.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 17 October 2053 at 18:44 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.447°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.541° at the point of next northern standstill on 31 October 2053 at 15:02 in ♊ Gemini.
In 1 day on 27 October 2053 at 10:38 in ♉ Taurus the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
