Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 6 April 2033 at 15:14.

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 ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1770"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1913".

Pink Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2033 after 1 day on 14 April 2033 at 19:17.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Libra ♎ on 14 April 2033 at 19:17
  • Last Quarter in Aquarius ♒ on 22 April 2033 at 11:42
  • New Moon in Taurus ♉ on 29 April 2033 at 02:46
  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 6 May 2033 at 06:45

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 411 / 1364

The Moon is 13 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.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.37 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 55 minutes. It is 5 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 49 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 20 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠8.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠8.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠25.1°.

Moon after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 12 April 2033 at 02:26 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 27 April 2033 at 14:44 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 005 km

The Moon is 405 005 km (251 658 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 14 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 572 km (224 049 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after descending node on 31 March 2033 at 11:09 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 14 April 2033 at 11:28 in ♎ Libra.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

26 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 before southern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 4 April 2033 at 20:56 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.590°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.596° at the point of next southern standstill on 19 April 2033 at 14:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 14 April 2033 at 19:17 in ♎ Libra 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.
