Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 95% and growing larger. The 13 days young Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 29 November 2033 at 15:15.
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 is passing about ∠18° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2033 after 1 day on 6 December 2033 at 07:22.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 419 of Meeus index or 1372 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 7 minutes. It is 1 hour and 52 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°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 23 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠217.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠252°.
Moon is at perigee at 08:06. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 18 November 2033 at 10:41 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 16 December 2033 at 03:29 in ♎ Libra.
This perigee Moon is 362 272 km (225 105 mi) away from Earth. It is 236 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 8 084 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
2 days after descending node on 1 December 2033 at 23:03 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 15 December 2033 at 02:35 in ♎ Libra.
16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
10 days since the previous standstill on 24 November 2033 at 06:12 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.438°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.469° at the point of next northern standstill on 7 December 2033 at 04:42 in ♊ Gemini.
In 1 day on 6 December 2033 at 07:22 in ♊ Gemini 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.
