Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 6 May 2033 at 06:45.
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 ∠18° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1899".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2033 after 2 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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 412 of Meeus index or 1365 from Brown series.
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°).
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.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠25.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠46°.
1 day after point of apogee on 9 May 2033 at 16:25 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 25 May 2033 at 13:01 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 404 413 km (251 291 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 14 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 415 km (227 058 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♎ Libra at 17:56 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 25 May 2033 at 05:37 in ♈ Aries.
At 17:56 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
9 days since the previous standstill on 2 May 2033 at 06:31 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.619°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.668° at the point of next southern standstill on 16 May 2033 at 20:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 2 days on 14 May 2033 at 10:43 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
