Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 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.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1913".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2033 after 1 day on 14 April 2033 at 19:17.
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 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.
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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 12 April 2033 at 02:26 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 April 2033 at 14:44 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 405 005 km (251 658 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 572 km (224 049 mi).
13 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.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous North standstill on 4 April 2033 at 20:56 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.590°. Next 6 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 1 day 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.
