Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 1 March 2033 at 08:23.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2033 after 12 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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 410 of Meeus index or 1363 from Brown series.
Length of current 410 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 28 minutes. It is 33 minutes longer than next lunation 411 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 16 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 53 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠353°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠8.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
1 day after point of perigee on 1 March 2033 at 18:17 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 March 2033 at 22:00 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 364 389 km (226 421 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 368 km (252 505 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 19 February 2033 at 01:22 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 March 2033 at 01:01 in ♈ Aries.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 24 February 2033 at 01:02 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.763°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.688° in the next northern standstill on 8 March 2033 at 13:21 in ♊ Gemini.
After 12 days on 16 March 2033 at 01:37 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
