Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 13 November 2033 at 20:09.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1791"

Lunar disc appears visually 8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1791" and ∠1940".

Cold Moon after 20 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2033 after 20 days on 6 December 2033 at 07:22.

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 418 / 1371

The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 418 of Meeus index or 1371 from Brown series.

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 perigee

9 days after point of perigee on 5 November 2033 at 23:57 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 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 18 November 2033 at 10:41 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 400 318 km

The Moon is 400 318 km (248 746 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 836 km (252 175 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after descending node on 4 November 2033 at 16:35 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 18 November 2033 at 00:01 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

24 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 after northern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 9 November 2033 at 16:57 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.369°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.438° at the point of next southern standstill on 24 November 2033 at 06:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 22 November 2033 at 01:39 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
