Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 10 August 2033 at 18:08.

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.

Synodic month length 29.56 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 27 minutes. It is 2 hours and 33 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 43 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 20 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠108.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠108.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠140.6°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 21:22. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 31 July 2033 at 23:13 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next apogee on 28 August 2033 at 15:27 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 362 710 km

This perigee Moon is 362 710 km (225 378 mi) away from Earth. It is 202 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 7 646 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 1 August 2033 at 03:38 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 14 August 2033 at 11:54 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 7 August 2033 at 00:25 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.529°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.456° at the point of next northern standstill on 19 August 2033 at 17:46 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 24 August 2033 at 21:40 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.
