Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 22 November 2033 at 01:39.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1811" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2033 after 12 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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 419 of Meeus index or 1372 from Brown series.
Length of current 419 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 7 minutes. It is 1 hour and 52 minutes longer than next lunation 420 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 23 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠217.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠252°. 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°).
5 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 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 December 2033 at 08:06 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 395 747 km (245 906 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 272 km (225 105 mi).
5 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 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 December 2033 at 23:03 in ♈ Aries.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
13 days after previous North standstill on 9 November 2033 at 16:57 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.369°. Next day 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 12 days on 6 December 2033 at 07:22 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
