Gibbous ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 8 September 2073 at 16:19.
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.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1822" and ∠1908".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2073 after 2 days on 16 September 2073 at 08:52.
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 911 of Meeus index or 1864 from Brown series.
Length of current 911 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 29 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2073. It is 23 minutes shorter than next lunation 912 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 54 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠334.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠351.1°. 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 3 September 2073 at 14:51 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 September 2073 at 03:23 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 393 377 km (244 433 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 134 km (252 360 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 16:02 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 28 September 2073 at 04:00 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 10 September 2073 at 08:21 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.604°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.692° in the next northern standstill on 25 September 2073 at 01:43 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 days on 16 September 2073 at 08:52 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
