Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 4 June 2033 at 23:39.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon is entering ♎ Libra

Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1891".

Strawberry Moon after 6 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2033 after 6 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
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 26 June 2033 at 21:07
  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 4 July 2033 at 17:12

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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 413 of Meeus index or 1366 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 10:13. It is 11 days after previous perigee on 25 May 2033 at 13:01 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next perigee on 21 June 2033 at 01:28 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 404 291 km

This apogee Moon is 404 291 km (251 215 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 117 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 418 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

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

Draconic month

25 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 southern standstill

7 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 6 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 6 days

In 6 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.
