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 first ∠4° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2033 after 5 days on 12 July 2033 at 09:29.
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.
The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 414 of Meeus index or 1367 from Brown series.
Length of current 414 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 6 minutes. It is 2 hours and 21 minutes shorter than next lunation 415 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 39 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 31 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠74.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠108.5°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 4 July 2033 at 04:55 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 16 July 2033 at 09:27 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 402 842 km (250 314 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 673 km (228 461 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 5 July 2033 at 01:29 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 July 2033 at 09:20 in ♈ Aries.

10 days after previous North standstill on 26 June 2033 at 03:12 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.717°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.676° in the next southern standstill on 10 July 2033 at 14:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 5 days on 12 July 2033 at 09:29 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
