Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1929".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2033 after 15 days on 6 November 2033 at 20:32.
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 13:40 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 417 of Meeus index or 1370 from Brown series.
29 days, 17 hours and 49 minutes is the length of new lunation 417. It is 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 418 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠166.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠190.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 03:15, this is 13 days after last perigee on 8 October 2033 at 12:11 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 5 November 2033 at 23:57 in ♈ Aries.
This apogee Moon is 406 439 km (252 549 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 031 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 270 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 21 October 2033 at 19:04 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 November 2033 at 16:35 in ♈ Aries.

9 days after previous North standstill on 13 October 2033 at 07:00 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.284°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.327° in the next southern standstill on 27 October 2033 at 23:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
