Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 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.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1955" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2033 after 11 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 4 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°).
2 days 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 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 March 2033 at 22:00 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 366 578 km (227 781 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 368 km (252 505 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 01:01 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 18 March 2033 at 05:18 in ♎ Libra.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 24 February 2033 at 01:02 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.763°. Next 4 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 11 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.
