Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1906".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2033 after 16 days on 14 May 2033 at 10:43.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 perigee on this date at 14:44, this is 15 days after last apogee on 12 April 2033 at 02:26 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 9 May 2033 at 16:25 in ♍ Virgo.
This perigee Moon is 360 572 km (224 049 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 936 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 784 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 21:57 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 11 May 2033 at 17:56 in ♎ Libra.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 19 April 2033 at 14:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.596°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.619° in the next northern standstill on 2 May 2033 at 06:31 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 29 April 2033 at 02:46 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
