Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 12 June 2033 at 23:19.

Moonrise and moonset

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 in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1929"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1929" and ∠1889".

Strawberry Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2033 after 25 days on 12 July 2033 at 09:29.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 413 / 1366

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.

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 apogee

10 days after point of apogee on 6 June 2033 at 10:13 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 June 2033 at 01:28 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 371 585 km

The Moon is 371 585 km (230 892 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 518 km (229 608 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after ascending node on 7 June 2033 at 22:45 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 21 June 2033 at 08:42 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 13 June 2033 at 04:17 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.723°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.717° at the point of next northern standstill on 26 June 2033 at 03:12 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 26 June 2033 at 21:07 in ♊ Gemini the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
