Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 19 June 2033 at 23:29.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1925" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2033 after 17 days on 12 July 2033 at 09:29.
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 27 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.
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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 21 June 2033 at 01:28 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 July 2033 at 04:55 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 372 262 km (231 313 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 093 km (251 092 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 21 June 2033 at 08:42 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 July 2033 at 01:29 in ♎ Libra.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 13 June 2033 at 04:17 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.723°. Next day 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 2 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.
