Crescent ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 24 August 2033 at 21:40.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2033 after 12 days on 9 September 2033 at 02:20.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 416 of Meeus index or 1369 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 49 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°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 47 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠140.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠166.6°.
14 days after point of perigee on 12 August 2033 at 21:22 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 28 August 2033 at 15:27 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 405 169 km (251 760 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 762 km (252 129 mi).
13 days after descending node on 14 August 2033 at 11:54 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 28 August 2033 at 07:12 in ♎ Libra.
26 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 19 August 2033 at 17:46 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.456°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.364° at the point of next southern standstill on 3 September 2033 at 09:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 12 days on 9 September 2033 at 02:20 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
