Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2033 after 15 days on 6 December 2033 at 07:22.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 18 November 2033 at 10:41 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 December 2033 at 08:06 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 404 168 km (251 138 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 272 km (225 105 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 18 November 2033 at 00:01 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 December 2033 at 23:03 in ♈ Aries.

10 days after previous North standstill on 9 November 2033 at 16:57 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.369°. Next 3 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 1 day 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.
