Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 6 April 2033 at 15:14.

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 ♍ Virgo

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♎ Libra later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1914".

Pink Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2033 after 2 days on 14 April 2033 at 19:17.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Libra ♎ on 14 April 2033 at 19:17
  • Last Quarter in Aquarius ♒ on 22 April 2033 at 11:42
  • New Moon in Taurus ♉ on 29 April 2033 at 02:46
  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 6 May 2033 at 06:45

Neap tide

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.

Lunation 411 / 1364

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 411 of Meeus index or 1364 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 411 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 55 minutes. It is 5 minutes longer than next lunation 412 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

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

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠8.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠8.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠25.1°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 02:26, this is 12 days after last perigee on 30 March 2033 at 06:09 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 27 April 2033 at 14:44 in ♈ Aries.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 060 km

This apogee Moon is 406 060 km (252 314 mi) away from Earth. It is 652 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 649 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 31 March 2033 at 11:09 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 14 April 2033 at 11:28 in ♎ Libra.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

7 days after previous North standstill on 4 April 2033 at 20:56 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.590°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.596° in the next southern standstill on 19 April 2033 at 14:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 14 April 2033 at 19:17 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
