Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1891"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1891" and ∠1893".

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2033 after 14 days on 12 June 2033 at 23:19.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Virgo ♍ on 4 June 2033 at 23:39
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 12 June 2033 at 23:19
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 19 June 2033 at 23:29
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 26 June 2033 at 21:07

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 413 / 1366

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 413 of Meeus index or 1366 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.4 days

Length of current 413 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 30 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter than next lunation 414 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠46°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠74.1°. 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 after perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 25 May 2033 at 13:01 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 June 2033 at 10:13 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 379 130 km

Moon is 379 130 km (235 580 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 291 km (251 215 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 25 May 2033 at 05:37 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 June 2033 at 22:45 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

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

Moon in northern standstill

At 17:10 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.697°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.723° in its southern standstill point on 13 June 2033 at 04:17 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 14 days

After 14 days on 12 June 2033 at 23:19 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
