Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

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 ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1935".

Beaver Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2033 after 2 days on 6 November 2033 at 20:32.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 418 / 1371

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 418 of Meeus index or 1371 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.76 days

Length of current 418 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 11 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2033. It is 1 hour and 4 minutes longer than next lunation 419 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 27 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠190.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠190.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠217.2°. 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 perigee

13 days after point of apogee on 22 October 2033 at 03:15 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 5 November 2033 at 23:57 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 363 597 km

Moon is 363 597 km (225 929 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 102 km (222 514 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 16:35 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 18 November 2033 at 00:01 in ♎ Libra.

Moon before northern standstill

7 days after previous South standstill on 27 October 2033 at 23:48 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.327°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.369° in the next northern standstill on 9 November 2033 at 16:57 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 6 November 2033 at 20:32 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
