Crescent ♌ Leo
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1908" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2073 after 14 days on 17 August 2073 at 17:45.
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 17:04 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 910 of Meeus index or 1863 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 49 minutes is the length of new lunation 910. It is 20 minutes longer than next lunation 911 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠313.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠334.3°. 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 apogee on 25 July 2073 at 19:45 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 August 2073 at 17:22 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 375 619 km (233 399 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 543 km (227 138 mi).
13 days after its descending node on 21 July 2073 at 02:27 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 August 2073 at 08:57 in ♌ Leo.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 1 August 2073 at 07:46 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.570°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.556° in the next southern standstill on 14 August 2073 at 02:57 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
