Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 6 April 2033 at 15:14.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2033 after 2 days on 14 April 2033 at 19:17.
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.
The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 411 of Meeus index or 1364 from Brown series.
Length of current 411 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 55 minutes. It is 5 minutes longer than next lunation 412 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 20 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠8.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠25.1°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 02:26, this is 12 days after last perigee on 30 March 2033 at 06:09 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 27 April 2033 at 14:44 in ♈ Aries.
This apogee Moon is 406 060 km (252 314 mi) away from Earth. It is 652 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 649 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
12 days after its descending node on 31 March 2033 at 11:09 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 14 April 2033 at 11:28 in ♎ Libra.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous North standstill on 4 April 2033 at 20:56 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.590°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.596° in the next southern standstill on 19 April 2033 at 14:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 2 days on 14 April 2033 at 19:17 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
