Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1784" and ∠1899".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2033 after 14 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°).
12 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 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 August 2033 at 15:27 in ♎ Libra.

11 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 August 2033 at 07:12 in ♎ Libra.

5 days after previous North standstill on 19 August 2033 at 17:46 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.456°. Next 8 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.
