* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 19 July 2033 at 04:07 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2033 after 23 days on 10 August 2033 at 18:08.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 16 July 2033 at 09:27 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 31 July 2033 at 23:13 in ♎ Libra.

7 days after previous South standstill on 10 July 2033 at 14:02 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.676°. Next 4 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 7 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.
