Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 10 December 2053 at 03:40.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2053 after 11 days on 25 December 2053 at 09:23.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is 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.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠141.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠168.6°.
Moon is at apogee at 21:20. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 27 November 2053 at 23:02 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 26 December 2053 at 06:40 in ♋ Cancer.
This apogee Moon is 405 943 km (252 241 mi) away from Earth. It is 535 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 766 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
10 days after ascending node on 2 December 2053 at 16:41 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 17 December 2053 at 00:48 in ♓ Pisces.
10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 11 December 2053 at 12:05 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.771°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.770° at the point of next northern standstill on 25 December 2053 at 11:21 in ♋ Cancer.
In 11 days on 25 December 2053 at 09:23 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
