Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 4 June 2033 at 23:39.
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 passing first ∠3° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2033 after 6 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 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.
Length of current 413 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 30 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter than next lunation 414 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠74.1°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 10:13, this is 11 days after last perigee on 25 May 2033 at 13:01 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 21 June 2033 at 01:28 in ♈ Aries.
This apogee Moon is 404 291 km (251 215 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 117 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 418 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
12 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 June 2033 at 22:45 in ♎ Libra.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous North standstill on 29 May 2033 at 17:10 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.697°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.723° in the next southern standstill on 13 June 2033 at 04:17 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 6 days on 12 June 2033 at 23:19 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
