Moon phase and lunation details

7 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 7 days on 24 August 2033 at 21:40.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon is entering ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1804"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1804" and ∠1902".

Harvest Moon after 7 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2033 after 7 days on 9 September 2033 at 02:20.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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 416 / 1369

The Moon is 7 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.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.67 days

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°).

Lunation length longer than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠140.6°

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°.

Moon after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 28 August 2033 at 15:27 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 10 September 2033 at 01:49 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 397 426 km

The Moon is 397 426 km (246 949 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 590 km (222 817 mi).

Moon after ascending node

4 days after ascending node on 28 August 2033 at 07:12 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 10 September 2033 at 19:07 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

12 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 day to face maximum declination of ∠-18.364° at the point of next southern standstill on 3 September 2033 at 09:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 7 days

In 7 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.
