Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1943" and ∠1905".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2033 after 14 days on 14 May 2033 at 10:43.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 02:46 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 412 of Meeus index or 1365 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 50 minutes is the length of new lunation 412. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2033. It is 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 413 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠25.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠46°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 27 April 2033 at 14:44 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 May 2033 at 16:25 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 368 888 km (229 216 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 167 km (251 759 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 27 April 2033 at 21:57 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 May 2033 at 17:56 in ♎ Libra.

9 days after previous South standstill on 19 April 2033 at 14:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.596°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.619° in the next northern standstill on 2 May 2033 at 06:31 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
