Crescent ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 24 October 2073 at 02:22.
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 ∠20° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1912" and ∠1930".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2073 after 20 days on 14 November 2073 at 19:55.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 912 of Meeus index or 1865 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 7 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 17 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠351.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠6.3°.
9 days after point of apogee on 16 October 2073 at 08:16 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 30 October 2073 at 10:23 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 374 852 km (232 922 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 043 km (221 856 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 09:03 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 6 November 2073 at 19:59 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 09:03 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
3 days since the previous standstill on 22 October 2073 at 08:46 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.918°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.020° at the point of next southern standstill on 3 November 2073 at 23:06 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 5 days on 30 October 2073 at 19:13 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
