Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 18 November 2053 at 13:26.
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 first ∠3° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1831" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2053 after 4 days on 25 November 2053 at 22:21.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 666 of Meeus index or 1619 from Brown series.
Length of current 666 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 45 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 667 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠106.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠141.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
5 days after point of apogee on 16 November 2053 at 03:37 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 November 2053 at 23:02 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 391 404 km (243 207 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 464 km (225 225 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 19 November 2053 at 23:07 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 December 2053 at 16:41 in ♍ Virgo.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 14 November 2053 at 03:32 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.637°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.707° in the next northern standstill on 27 November 2053 at 23:44 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 days on 25 November 2053 at 22:21 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
