Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 8 March 2033 at 01:27.

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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1848"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1848" and ∠1932".

Worm Moon after 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2033 after 6 days on 16 March 2033 at 01:37.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Synodic month length 29.39 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 28 minutes. It is 33 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 16 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 53 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠353°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠353°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠8.3°.

Moon before perigee

7 days after point of perigee on 1 March 2033 at 18:17 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 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 15 March 2033 at 22:00 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 387 929 km

The Moon is 387 929 km (241 048 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 6 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 368 km (252 505 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after descending node on 4 March 2033 at 01:01 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 18 March 2033 at 05:18 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

18 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

1 day since the previous standstill on 8 March 2033 at 13:21 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.688°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.613° at the point of next southern standstill on 23 March 2033 at 08:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 16 March 2033 at 01:37 in ♍ Virgo 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.
