Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 15 January 2033 at 13:07.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1780"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1780" and ∠1950".

Wolf Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2033 after 27 days on 14 February 2033 at 07:04.

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 408 / 1361

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 408 of Meeus index or 1361 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 before perigee

13 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 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 20 January 2033 at 07:04 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 402 652 km

The Moon is 402 652 km (250 196 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 294 km (251 838 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after descending node on 8 January 2033 at 18:31 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 22 January 2033 at 23:41 in ♎ Libra.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

4 days 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 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.973° at the point of next southern standstill on 27 January 2033 at 14:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 30 January 2033 at 22:00 in ♒ Aquarius the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
