Hunter Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2033 after 13 days on 8 October 2033 at 10:58.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 417 / 1370

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 417 of Meeus index or 1370 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.74 days

Length of current 417 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 49 minutes. It is 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 418 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠166.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠166.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠190.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon before apogee

14 days after point of perigee on 10 September 2033 at 01:49 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 September 2033 at 01:33 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 405 452 km

Moon is 405 452 km (251 936 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 444 km (252 553 mi).

Moon in ascending node

New draconic month

At 12:46 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 15 September 2033 at 23:39 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.313°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.282° in the next southern standstill on 30 September 2033 at 17:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 8 October 2033 at 10:58 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
