Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 22 November 2033 at 01:39.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1811"

Lunar disc appears visually 7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1811" and ∠1944".

Cold Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2033 after 12 days on 6 December 2033 at 07:22.

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 419 / 1372

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 419 of Meeus index or 1372 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.71 days

Length of current 419 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 7 minutes. It is 1 hour and 52 minutes longer than next lunation 420 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 23 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠217.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠217.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠252°. 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 after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 18 November 2033 at 10:41 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 December 2033 at 08:06 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 395 747 km

Moon is 395 747 km (245 906 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 272 km (225 105 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after its ascending node on 18 November 2033 at 00:01 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 December 2033 at 23:03 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

13 days after previous North standstill on 9 November 2033 at 16:57 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.369°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.438° in the next southern standstill on 24 November 2033 at 06:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 6 December 2033 at 07:22 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
