Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1786" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2053 after 14 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 03:40 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 667 of Meeus index or 1620 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 53 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2053. It is 47 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 6 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 54 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠141.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠168.6°.
12 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 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 13 December 2053 at 21:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 401 245 km (249 322 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 943 km (252 241 mi).
7 days after ascending node on 2 December 2053 at 16:41 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 17 December 2053 at 00:48 in ♓ Pisces.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
12 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 day to face maximum declination of ∠-18.771° at the point of next southern standstill on 11 December 2053 at 12:05 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
