Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 27 October 2053 at 10:38.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1933".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2053 after 25 days on 25 November 2053 at 22:21.
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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°.
Moon is at perigee at 10:02. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 19 October 2053 at 07:14 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 16 November 2053 at 03:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
This perigee Moon is 368 005 km (228 668 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 497 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 351 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days after descending node on 23 October 2053 at 18:33 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 5 November 2053 at 16:13 in ♍ Virgo.
21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 15:02 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠18.541°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-18.637° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 14 November 2053 at 03:32.
In 9 days on 10 November 2053 at 10:55 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
