Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2033 after 25 days on 10 August 2033 at 18:08.
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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 09:27, this is 12 days after last apogee on 4 July 2033 at 04:55 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 31 July 2033 at 23:13 in ♎ Libra.
This perigee Moon is 367 673 km (228 461 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 165 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 683 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 days 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 July 2033 at 09:20 in ♈ Aries.

5 days after previous South standstill on 10 July 2033 at 14:02 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.676°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.624° in the next northern standstill on 23 July 2033 at 11:24 in ♊ Gemini.
After 9 days on 26 July 2033 at 08:12 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
