Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1943" and ∠1905".

At 02:46 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 412 of Meeus index or 1365 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.37 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 50 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2033. It is 40 minutes shorter 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 54 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 15 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠25.1°

The true anomaly is ∠25.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠46°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 27 April 2033 at 14:44 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 9 May 2033 at 16:25 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 368 888 km

The Moon is 368 888 km (229 216 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 167 km (251 759 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 27 April 2033 at 21:57 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 11 May 2033 at 17:56 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

15 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 northern standstill

9 days 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 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.619° at the point of next northern standstill on 2 May 2033 at 06:31 in ♊ Gemini.

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
