Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Synodic month length 29.67 days

Length of current 416 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 417 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 47 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠140.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠140.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠166.6°. 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 apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 28 August 2033 at 15:27 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 September 2033 at 01:49 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 853 km

Moon is 404 853 km (251 564 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 590 km (222 817 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 28 August 2033 at 07:12 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 September 2033 at 19:07 in ♈ Aries.

Moon before southern standstill

9 days after previous North standstill on 19 August 2033 at 17:46 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.456°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.364° in the next southern standstill on 3 September 2033 at 09:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 9 September 2033 at 02:20 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
