Moon ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 2 December 2053 at 14:04.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1818" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2053 after 16 days on 25 December 2053 at 09:23.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is 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.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠106.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠141.1°.
10 days after point of perigee on 27 November 2053 at 23:02 in ♊ Gemini. 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 13 December 2053 at 21:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 394 345 km (245 035 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 943 km (252 241 mi).
5 days after ascending node on 2 December 2053 at 16:41 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 17 December 2053 at 00:48 in ♓ Pisces.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
10 days since the previous standstill on 27 November 2053 at 23:44 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.707°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.771° at the point of next southern standstill on 11 December 2053 at 12:05 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 1 day on 10 December 2053 at 03:40 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
