Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1969"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1888".

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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 01:28. It is 14 days after previous apogee on 6 June 2033 at 10:13 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 4 July 2033 at 04:55 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 369 518 km

This perigee Moon is 369 518 km (229 608 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2033. It is 7 010 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 838 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 08:42 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 5 July 2033 at 01:29 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

8 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 4 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 5 days

In 5 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.
