Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 29 November 2073 at 05:12.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1929" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2073 after 14 days on 14 December 2073 at 13:49.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 914 of Meeus index or 1867 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 59 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 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 8 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠22.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠43.1°.
2 days after point of perigee on 27 November 2073 at 21:03 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 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 9 December 2073 at 22:16 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 371 586 km (230 893 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 427 km (251 921 mi).
9 days after ascending node on 21 November 2073 at 10:04 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 3 December 2073 at 22:40 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.
11 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 day to face maximum declination of ∠-20.206° at the point of next southern standstill on 1 December 2073 at 10:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 14 days on 14 December 2073 at 13:49 in ♊ Gemini 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.
