Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1827" and ∠1938".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2053 after 15 days on 25 November 2053 at 22:21.
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 10:55 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 666 of Meeus index or 1619 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 45 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 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 4 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 2 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠106.8°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠141.1°.
10 days after point of perigee on 31 October 2053 at 10:02 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 16 November 2053 at 03:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 392 262 km (243 740 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 957 km (251 629 mi).
4 days after ascending node on 5 November 2053 at 16:13 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 19 November 2053 at 23:07 in ♓ Pisces.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 31 October 2053 at 15:02 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.541°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.637° at the point of next southern standstill on 14 November 2053 at 03:32 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
