Gibbous ♎ Libra
Waning Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 79% and getting smaller. The 19 days old Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 15 January 2033 at 13:07.
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 is leaving the last ∠4° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♎ Libra later.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2033 after 24 days on 14 February 2033 at 07:04.
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 19 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.
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°.
Moon is at apogee at 07:04. It is 16 days after previous perigee on 4 January 2033 at 05:24 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next perigee on 1 February 2033 at 07:27 in ♓ Pisces.
This apogee Moon is 405 294 km (251 838 mi) away from Earth. It is 114 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 415 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
11 days after descending node on 8 January 2033 at 18:31 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 22 January 2033 at 23:41 in ♎ Libra.
24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
7 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 7 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 10 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.
