Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon is entering ♉ Taurus

Snow Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2033 after 8 days on 14 February 2033 at 07:04.

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 409 / 1362

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 409 of Meeus index or 1362 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.43 days

Length of current 409 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 24 minutes. It is 56 minutes longer than next lunation 410 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠336.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠336.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠353°. 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 after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 1 February 2033 at 07:27 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 February 2033 at 19:57 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 368 335 km

Moon is 368 335 km (228 873 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 072 km (252 321 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 4 February 2033 at 19:25 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 February 2033 at 01:22 in ♎ Libra.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 27 January 2033 at 14:55 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.973°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.889° in the next northern standstill on 9 February 2033 at 07:09 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 14 February 2033 at 07:04 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
