Moon* ♋ Cancer
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 99% and growing larger. The 14 days young Moon is in ♋ Cancer.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 8 January 2033 at 03:34.
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 is passing about ∠12° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1826" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2033 after 1 day on 15 January 2033 at 13:07.
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.
The Moon is 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 408 of Meeus index or 1361 from Brown series.
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°).
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.
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°.
10 days after point of perigee on 4 January 2033 at 05:24 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 20 January 2033 at 07:04 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 392 447 km (243 855 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 294 km (251 838 mi).
5 days after descending node on 8 January 2033 at 18:31 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 22 January 2033 at 23:41 in ♎ Libra.
18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 13 January 2033 at 00:33 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.075°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.973° at the point of next southern standstill on 27 January 2033 at 14:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 1 day 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.
