Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Waning Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 99% and getting smaller. The 16 days old Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 14 February 2033 at 07:04.
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 passing about ∠10° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2033 after 28 days on 16 March 2033 at 01:37.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 409 of Meeus index or 1362 from Brown series.
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°).
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.
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°.
14 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 16 February 2033 at 19:57 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 405 037 km (251 678 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 072 km (252 321 mi).
10 days after descending node on 4 February 2033 at 19:25 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 19 February 2033 at 01:22 in ♎ Libra.
23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 9 February 2033 at 07:09 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.889°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.763° at the point of next southern standstill on 24 February 2033 at 01:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 13 days on 1 March 2033 at 08:23 in ♓ Pisces 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.
