Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1965"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1894".

Strawberry Moon after 18 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2033 after 18 days on 12 June 2033 at 23:19.

Neap tide

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.

Lunation 412 / 1365

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.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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°

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°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 13:01. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 9 May 2033 at 16:25 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 6 June 2033 at 10:13 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 365 415 km

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 further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 05:37 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 7 June 2033 at 22:45 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

13 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

8 days since the previous standstill on 16 May 2033 at 20:25 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.668°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.697° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 May 2033 at 17:10 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 28 May 2033 at 11:36 in ♊ Gemini 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.
