Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 5 June 2073 at 19:51.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1885"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1885" and ∠1890".

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.

Lunation 908 / 1861

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 908 of Meeus index or 1861 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.48 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 19 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 50 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠250°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠250°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠284.5°.

Moon before apogee

8 days after point of apogee on 31 May 2073 at 06:54 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 15 June 2073 at 21:26 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 380 159 km

The Moon is 380 159 km (236 220 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 448 km (228 322 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after descending node on 27 May 2073 at 15:39 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 10 June 2073 at 22:06 in ♌ Leo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 7 June 2073 at 13:47 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.587°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.607° at the point of next southern standstill on 20 June 2073 at 11:20 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 19 June 2073 at 18:44 in ♐ Sagittarius the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
