Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 19 July 2033 at 04:07.

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 ♉ Taurus

Synodic month length 29.46 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 6 minutes. It is 2 hours and 21 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 1 hour and 39 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 31 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠74.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠74.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠108.5°.

Moon after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 16 July 2033 at 09:27 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 31 July 2033 at 23:13 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 367 174 km

The Moon is 367 174 km (228 151 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 734 km (251 490 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after descending node on 18 July 2033 at 09:20 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 1 August 2033 at 03:38 in ♎ Libra.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days since the previous standstill on 10 July 2033 at 14:02 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.676°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.624° at the point of next northern standstill on 23 July 2033 at 11:24 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 days on 26 July 2033 at 08:12 in ♌ Leo 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.
