Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 6 February 2033 at 13:34.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1859"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1859" and ∠1944".

Snow Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2033 after 4 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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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 before perigee

8 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 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 16 February 2033 at 19:57 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 385 648 km

The Moon is 385 648 km (239 631 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 072 km (252 321 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 4 February 2033 at 19:25 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 19 February 2033 at 01:22 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

17 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 at northern standstill

At 07:09 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠18.889°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-18.763° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 24 February 2033 at 01:02.

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 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.
