Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 30 January 2033 at 22:00.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2033 after 10 days on 14 February 2033 at 07:04.
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 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.
Length of current 409 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 24 minutes. It is 56 minutes longer than next lunation 410 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠336.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠353°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
2 days after point of perigee on 1 February 2033 at 07:27 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 February 2033 at 19:57 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 363 848 km (226 085 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 072 km (252 321 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 22 January 2033 at 23:41 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 February 2033 at 19:25 in ♈ Aries.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 27 January 2033 at 14:55 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.973°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.889° in the next northern standstill on 9 February 2033 at 07:09 in ♊ Gemini.
After 10 days on 14 February 2033 at 07:04 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
