Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 5 June 2073 at 19:51.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1909" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2073 after 10 days on 19 June 2073 at 18:44.
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 4 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.
Length of current 908 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes longer than next lunation 909 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 19 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 50 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠250°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠284.5°. 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 apogee on 31 May 2073 at 06:54 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 June 2073 at 21:26 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 375 571 km (233 369 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 448 km (228 322 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 27 May 2073 at 15:39 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 10 June 2073 at 22:06 in ♌ Leo.

1 day after previous North standstill on 7 June 2073 at 13:47 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.587°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.607° in the next southern standstill on 20 June 2073 at 11:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 10 days on 19 June 2073 at 18:44 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
