Quarter* ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 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 ∠16° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1899" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2073 after 23 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 21 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°.
9 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 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 27 November 2073 at 21:03 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 377 355 km (234 478 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 828 km (223 587 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 10:04 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 3 December 2073 at 22:40 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 10:04 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
2 days since the previous standstill on 18 November 2073 at 15:10 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.145°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.206° at the point of next southern standstill on 1 December 2073 at 10:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 7 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.
