Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 8 October 2033 at 10:58.

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.

Moon is entering ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1970"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1922".

Hunter Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2033 after 28 days on 6 November 2033 at 20:32.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 417 / 1370

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 417 of Meeus index or 1370 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.74 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 49 minutes. It is 22 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 58 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠166.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠166.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠190.3°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 8 October 2033 at 12:11 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 22 October 2033 at 03:15 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 848 km

The Moon is 363 848 km (226 085 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 439 km (252 549 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 8 October 2033 at 05:55 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 21 October 2033 at 19:04 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 30 September 2033 at 17:33 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.282°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.284° at the point of next northern standstill on 13 October 2033 at 07:00 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 23 October 2033 at 07:28 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
