Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 10 August 2073 at 09:54.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1855" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2073 after 2 days on 17 August 2073 at 17:45.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 910 of Meeus index or 1863 from Brown series.
Length of current 910 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 49 minutes. 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 perigee on 6 August 2073 at 17:22 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 August 2073 at 13:26 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 386 467 km (240 139 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 225 km (251 795 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 4 August 2073 at 08:57 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 August 2073 at 10:02 in ♒ Aquarius.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 14 August 2073 at 02:57 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.556°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.572° in the next northern standstill on 28 August 2073 at 17:17 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 days on 17 August 2073 at 17:45 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
