Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days 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 ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1781"

Lunar disc appears visually 9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1781" and ∠1949".

Wolf Moon before 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2033 after 22 days on 14 February 2033 at 07:04.

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 21 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.

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 after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 20 January 2033 at 07:04 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 February 2033 at 07:27 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 402 362 km

The Moon is 402 362 km (250 016 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 9 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 085 km (223 746 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♎ Libra at 23:41 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 4 February 2033 at 19:25 in ♈ Aries.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 23:41 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon before southern standstill

9 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 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.973° at the point of next southern standstill on 27 January 2033 at 14:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 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.
