Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 23 September 2033 at 13:40.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1914".

Hunter Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2033 after 12 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 2 days 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.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 01:33, this is 14 days after last perigee on 10 September 2033 at 01:49 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 8 October 2033 at 12:11 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 406 444 km

This apogee Moon is 406 444 km (252 553 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2033. It is 1 036 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 265 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 24 September 2033 at 12:46 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 8 October 2033 at 05:55 in ♈ Aries.

Moon before southern standstill

9 days after previous North standstill on 15 September 2033 at 23:39 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.313°. Next 5 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.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 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.
