Crescent ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1840" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2073 after 13 days on 19 June 2073 at 18:44.
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 19:51 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 908 of Meeus index or 1861 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 25 minutes is the length of new lunation 908. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes longer than next lunation 909 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 19 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 50 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠250°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠284.5°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 31 May 2073 at 06:54 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 June 2073 at 21:26 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 389 623 km (242 101 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 448 km (228 322 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 27 May 2073 at 15:39 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 June 2073 at 22:06 in ♌ Leo.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
13 days after previous South standstill on 24 May 2073 at 00:48 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.521°. Next day 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.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
