Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 8 March 2033 at 01:27.
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 is passing about ∠6° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1848" and ∠1932".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2033 after 6 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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
7 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 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 March 2033 at 22:00 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 387 929 km (241 048 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 368 km (252 505 mi).
5 days after its descending node on 4 March 2033 at 01:01 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 March 2033 at 05:18 in ♎ Libra.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 8 March 2033 at 13:21 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.688°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.613° in the next southern standstill on 23 March 2033 at 08:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 6 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.
