Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 6 November 2073 at 15:42.
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 ∠25° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1939".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2073 after 2 days on 14 November 2073 at 19:55.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 913 of Meeus index or 1866 from Brown series.
Length of current 913 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 59 minutes. It is 1 hour and 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 914 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 45 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 24 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠6.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠22.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 10:04, this is 12 days after last perigee on 30 October 2073 at 10:23 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 27 November 2073 at 21:03 in ♏ Scorpio.
This apogee Moon is 406 195 km (252 398 mi) away from Earth. It is 787 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 514 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
5 days after its descending node on 6 November 2073 at 19:59 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 November 2073 at 10:04 in ♌ Leo.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 3 November 2073 at 23:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.020°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.145° in the next northern standstill on 18 November 2073 at 15:10 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 days on 14 November 2073 at 19:55 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
