Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 21 May 2033 at 18:29.
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 ∠24° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2033 after 18 days on 12 June 2033 at 23:19.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 412 of Meeus index or 1365 from Brown series.
Length of current 412 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 next lunation 413 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠25.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠46°. 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 13:01, this is 15 days after last apogee on 9 May 2033 at 16:25 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 6 June 2033 at 10:13 in ♎ Libra.
This perigee Moon is 365 415 km (227 058 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 907 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 941 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 05:37 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 7 June 2033 at 22:45 in ♎ Libra.
13 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 South standstill on 16 May 2033 at 20:25 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.668°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.697° in the next northern standstill on 29 May 2033 at 17:10 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 days on 28 May 2033 at 11:36 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
