Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♉ Taurus

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♊ Gemini later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1918"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1918" and ∠1934".

Worm Moon after 9 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2033 after 9 days on 16 March 2033 at 01:37.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Gemini ♊ on 8 March 2033 at 01:27
  • Full Moon in Virgo ♍ on 16 March 2033 at 01:37

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 410 / 1363

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 410 of Meeus index or 1363 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.39 days

Length of current 410 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 28 minutes. It is 33 minutes longer than next lunation 411 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 16 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 53 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠353°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠353°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠8.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 1 March 2033 at 18:17 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 March 2033 at 22:00 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 373 780 km

Moon is 373 780 km (232 256 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 368 km (252 505 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 4 March 2033 at 01:01 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 March 2033 at 05:18 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 24 February 2033 at 01:02 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.763°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.688° in the next northern standstill on 8 March 2033 at 13:21 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 16 March 2033 at 01:37 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
