Crescent ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 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.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1786" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2053 after 8 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 6 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°.
2 days after point of apogee on 13 December 2053 at 21:20 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 26 December 2053 at 06:40 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 401 325 km (249 372 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 9 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 032 km (222 471 mi).
13 days after ascending node on 2 December 2053 at 16:41 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 17 December 2053 at 00:48 in ♓ Pisces.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the first to the middle part of the cycle.
4 days 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 8 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 8 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.
