Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 9 September 2033 at 02:20.
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.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1906".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2033 after 27 days on 8 October 2033 at 10:58.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 416 of Meeus index or 1369 from Brown series.
Length of current 416 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 417 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 47 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠140.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠166.6°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 01:49, this is 12 days after last apogee on 28 August 2033 at 15:27 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 25 September 2033 at 01:33 in ♎ Libra.
This perigee Moon is 358 590 km (222 817 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 918 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 766 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 19:07 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 24 September 2033 at 12:46 in ♎ Libra.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 3 September 2033 at 09:54 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.364°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.313° in the next northern standstill on 15 September 2033 at 23:39 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 23 September 2033 at 13:40 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
