Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 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 ∠9° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1953" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2033 after 17 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 27 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 25 May 2033 at 13:01 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 June 2033 at 10:13 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 367 070 km (228 087 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 291 km (251 215 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 25 May 2033 at 05:37 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 June 2033 at 22:45 in ♎ Libra.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 16 May 2033 at 20:25 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.668°. Next 3 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 1 day 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.
