Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 2 September 2033 at 02:24.

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 ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 416 of Meeus index or 1369 from Brown series.

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

5 days 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 6 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 388 819 km

Moon is 388 819 km (241 601 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 590 km (222 817 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days 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 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 September 2033 at 19:07 in ♈ Aries.

Moon in southern standstill

At 09:54 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.364°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.313° in its northern standstill point on 15 September 2033 at 23:39 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 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.
