Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2033 after 17 days on 6 December 2033 at 07:22.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 418 of Meeus index or 1371 from Brown series.
Length of current 418 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 11 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2033. It is 1 hour and 4 minutes longer than next lunation 419 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 27 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠190.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠217.2°. 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 10:41, this is 12 days after last perigee on 5 November 2033 at 23:57 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 4 December 2033 at 08:06 in ♉ Taurus.
This apogee Moon is 405 836 km (252 175 mi) away from Earth. It is 428 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 873 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♎ Libra at 00:01 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 1 December 2033 at 23:03 in ♈ Aries.
At 00:01 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
8 days after previous North standstill on 9 November 2033 at 16:57 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.369°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.438° in the next southern standstill on 24 November 2033 at 06:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 3 days on 22 November 2033 at 01:39 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
