Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 1 January 2033 at 10:17.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2033 after 11 days on 15 January 2033 at 13:07.
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.
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.
Length of current 408 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 19 minutes longer than next lunation 409 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠315.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠336.6°. 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 is reaching point of perigee on this date at 05:24, this is 11 days after last apogee on 23 December 2032 at 11:34 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 20 January 2033 at 07:04 in ♍ Virgo.
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 farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
8 days after its ascending node on 26 December 2032 at 21:36 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 January 2033 at 18:31 in ♈ Aries.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 31 December 2032 at 03:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.115°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.075° in the next northern standstill on 13 January 2033 at 00:33 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 days on 15 January 2033 at 13:07 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
