Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1914" and ∠1893".

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 413 / 1366

At 11:36 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 413 of Meeus index or 1366 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 30 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 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 14 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 55 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠46°

The true anomaly is ∠46°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠74.1°.

Moon after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 25 May 2033 at 13:01 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 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 6 June 2033 at 10:13 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 374 499 km

The Moon is 374 499 km (232 703 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 291 km (251 215 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after descending node on 25 May 2033 at 05:37 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 7 June 2033 at 22:45 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

16 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

11 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 day 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

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

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