Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 30 January 2033 at 22:00.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1970"

Snow Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2033 after 10 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 409 / 1362

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 409 of Meeus index or 1362 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.43 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 24 minutes. It is 56 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 2 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 49 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠336.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠336.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠353°.

Moon after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 1 February 2033 at 07:27 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 16 February 2033 at 19:57 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 363 848 km

The Moon is 363 848 km (226 085 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 13 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 072 km (252 321 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 22 January 2033 at 23:41 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 4 February 2033 at 19:25 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 27 January 2033 at 14:55 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.973°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.889° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 February 2033 at 07:09 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 14 February 2033 at 07:04 in ♌ Leo 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.
