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 at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 01:09. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 15 June 2073 at 21:26 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 11 July 2073 at 07:01 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 404 196 km

This apogee Moon is 404 196 km (251 156 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest apogee of 2073. It is 1 212 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 145 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 23 June 2073 at 19:45 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 July 2073 at 01:28 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

17 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 before northern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 20 June 2073 at 11:20 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.607°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.610° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 July 2073 at 22:14 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 5 July 2073 at 07:16 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
