Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1800" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2053 after 15 days on 25 December 2053 at 09:23.
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.
29 days, 16 hours and 45 minutes is the length of new lunation 666. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 27 November 2053 at 23:02 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 December 2053 at 21:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 398 134 km (247 389 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 943 km (252 241 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 2 December 2053 at 16:41 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 December 2053 at 00:48 in ♓ Pisces.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 27 November 2053 at 23:44 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.707°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.771° in the next southern standstill on 11 December 2053 at 12:05 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
