Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2033 after 10 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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 415 of Meeus index or 1368 from Brown series.
Length of current 415 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 27 minutes. It is 2 hours and 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 416 length.
Length of current synodic month is 43 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 20 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠108.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠140.6°. 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 apogee on this date at 23:13, this is 15 days after last perigee on 16 July 2033 at 09:27 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 12 August 2033 at 21:22 in ♓ Pisces.
This apogee Moon is 404 734 km (251 490 mi) away from Earth. It is 674 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 975 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
13 days after its descending node on 18 July 2033 at 09:20 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 August 2033 at 03:38 in ♎ Libra.

8 days after previous North standstill on 23 July 2033 at 11:24 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.624°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.529° in the next southern standstill on 7 August 2033 at 00:25 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 10 days on 10 August 2033 at 18:08 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
