Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 30 October 2073 at 19:13.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1915" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2073 after 11 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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 913 of Meeus index or 1866 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 59 minutes. It is 1 hour and 44 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 2 hours and 45 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 24 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠6.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠22.5°.
4 days after point of perigee on 30 October 2073 at 10:23 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 12 November 2073 at 10:04 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 374 335 km (232 601 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 195 km (252 398 mi).
9 days after ascending node on 25 October 2073 at 09:03 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 6 November 2073 at 19:59 in ♒ Aquarius.
9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 23:06 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-20.020°. Over the next 15 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠20.145° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 18 November 2073 at 15:10.
In 11 days on 14 November 2073 at 19:55 in ♉ Taurus 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.
