Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1797" and ∠1898".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2033 after 15 days on 9 September 2033 at 02:20.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 21:40 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 416 of Meeus index or 1369 from Brown series.
29 days, 16 hours and 1 minute is the length of new lunation 416. It is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 417 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 47 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠140.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠166.6°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 12 August 2033 at 21:22 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 August 2033 at 15:27 in ♎ Libra.

10 days after its descending node on 14 August 2033 at 11:54 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 August 2033 at 07:12 in ♎ Libra.

4 days after previous North standstill on 19 August 2033 at 17:46 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.456°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.364° in the next southern standstill on 3 September 2033 at 09:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
