Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 14 November 2073 at 19:55.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1831" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2073 after 26 days on 14 December 2073 at 13:49.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°.
6 days after point of apogee on 12 November 2073 at 10:04 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 27 November 2073 at 21:03 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 391 392 km (243 200 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 9 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 828 km (223 587 mi).
11 days after descending node on 6 November 2073 at 19:59 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 21 November 2073 at 10:04 in ♌ Leo.
24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 15:10 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠20.145°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-20.206° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 1 December 2073 at 10:11.
In 10 days on 29 November 2073 at 05:12 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
