Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 14 April 2033 at 19:17.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1883"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1883" and ∠1909".

Pink Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2033 after 23 days on 14 May 2033 at 10:43.

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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 before apogee

8 days 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 7 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 380 698 km

The Moon is 380 698 km (236 555 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 572 km (224 049 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days after ascending node on 14 April 2033 at 11:28 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 27 April 2033 at 21:57 in ♈ Aries.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

6 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 19 April 2033 at 14:20 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.596°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.619° at the point of next northern standstill on 2 May 2033 at 06:31 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 29 April 2033 at 02:46 in ♉ Taurus the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
