Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 3 August 2033 at 10:26.
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 about ∠7° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1814" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2033 after 5 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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 31 July 2033 at 23:13 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 August 2033 at 21:22 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 395 041 km (245 467 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 710 km (225 378 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 1 August 2033 at 03:38 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 August 2033 at 11:54 in ♈ Aries.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
13 days after previous North standstill on 23 July 2033 at 11:24 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.624°. Next day 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 5 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.
