Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 14 February 2033 at 07:04.

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 ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1942".

Snow Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2033 after 27 days on 16 March 2033 at 01:37.

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 409 / 1362

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.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 19:57. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 1 February 2033 at 07:27 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next perigee on 1 March 2033 at 18:17 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 072 km

This apogee Moon is 406 072 km (252 321 mi) away from Earth. It is 664 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 637 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

11 days after descending node on 4 February 2033 at 19:25 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 19 February 2033 at 01:22 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

24 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 after northern standstill

7 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 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.763° at the point of next southern standstill on 24 February 2033 at 01:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 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.
