Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 31 October 2033 at 04:46.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1971"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1935".

Beaver Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2033 after 2 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 418 / 1371

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 418 of Meeus index or 1371 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.76 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 11 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2033. It is 1 hour and 4 minutes longer 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 27 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠190.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠190.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠217.2°.

Moon before apogee

13 days after point of apogee on 22 October 2033 at 03:15 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 5 November 2033 at 23:57 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 363 597 km

The Moon is 363 597 km (225 929 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 102 km (222 514 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 16:35 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 18 November 2033 at 00:01 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

13 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

7 days since the previous standstill on 27 October 2033 at 23:48 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.327°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.369° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 November 2033 at 16:57 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 6 November 2033 at 20:32 in ♉ Taurus 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.
