Crescent ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 24 September 2073 at 12:32.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1926" and ∠1916".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2073 after 17 days on 16 October 2073 at 01:54.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 911 of Meeus index or 1864 from Brown series.
The length of the 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 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°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 54 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠334.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠351.1°.
9 days after point of apogee on 19 September 2073 at 03:23 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 October 2073 at 22:53 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 372 210 km (231 281 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 437 km (222 101 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 04:00 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 10 October 2073 at 18:58 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 04:00 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
3 days since the previous standstill on 25 September 2073 at 01:43 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.692°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.779° at the point of next southern standstill on 7 October 2073 at 14:29 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 2 days on 1 October 2073 at 10:21 in ♎ Libra 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.
