Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1777"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1891".

Strawberry Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2033 after 8 days on 12 June 2033 at 23:19.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 12 June 2033 at 23:19
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 19 June 2033 at 23:29

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 413 / 1366

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is 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°

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

Moon before perigee

9 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 6 June 2033 at 10:13 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 403 356 km

The Moon is 403 356 km (250 634 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 291 km (251 215 mi).

Moon before ascending node

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

Draconic month

23 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 after northern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 29 May 2033 at 17:10 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.697°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.723° at the point of next southern standstill on 13 June 2033 at 04:17 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 12 June 2033 at 23:19 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
