Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 1 January 2033 at 10:17.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♓ Pisces later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1966"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2033 after 11 days on 15 January 2033 at 13:07.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 408 / 1361

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 408 of Meeus index or 1361 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.49 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 19 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 8 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠315.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠315.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠336.6°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 05:24. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 23 December 2032 at 11:34 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 20 January 2033 at 07:04 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 365 354 km

This perigee Moon is 365 354 km (227 020 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 846 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 5 002 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

8 days after ascending node on 26 December 2032 at 21:36 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 8 January 2033 at 18:31 in ♈ Aries.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 31 December 2032 at 03:26 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.115°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.075° at the point of next northern standstill on 13 January 2033 at 00:33 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 15 January 2033 at 13:07 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
