Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 12 June 2033 at 23:19.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1929" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2033 after 25 days on 12 July 2033 at 09:29.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 6 June 2033 at 10:13 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 June 2033 at 01:28 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 371 585 km (230 892 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 518 km (229 608 mi).
8 days after its ascending node on 7 June 2033 at 22:45 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 June 2033 at 08:42 in ♈ Aries.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 13 June 2033 at 04:17 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.723°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.717° in the next northern standstill on 26 June 2033 at 03:12 in ♊ Gemini.
After 10 days on 26 June 2033 at 21:07 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
