Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 8 January 2033 at 03:34.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1826"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1826" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2033 after 1 day on 15 January 2033 at 13:07.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 408 / 1361

The Moon is 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 408 of Meeus index or 1361 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.49 days

Length of current 408 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 19 minutes longer than next lunation 409 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠315.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠315.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠336.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon before apogee

10 days after point of perigee on 4 January 2033 at 05:24 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 January 2033 at 07:04 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 392 447 km

Moon is 392 447 km (243 855 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 294 km (251 838 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 8 January 2033 at 18:31 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 January 2033 at 23:41 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 13 January 2033 at 00:33 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.075°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.973° in the next southern standstill on 27 January 2033 at 14:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 15 January 2033 at 13:07 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
