Quarter* ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 21 May 2073 at 10:02.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1801" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2073 after 23 days on 19 June 2073 at 18:44.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 907 of Meeus index or 1860 from Brown series.
Length of current 907 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 36 minutes. It is 2 hours and 11 minutes longer than next lunation 908 length.
Length of current synodic month is 52 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 11 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠218.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠250°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
8 days after point of perigee on 19 May 2073 at 08:24 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 31 May 2073 at 06:54 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 397 969 km (247 286 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 858 km (251 567 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 15:39 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 10 June 2073 at 22:06 in ♌ Leo.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 24 May 2073 at 00:48 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.521°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.587° in the next northern standstill on 7 June 2073 at 13:47 in ♋ Cancer.
After 9 days on 5 June 2073 at 19:51 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
