Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days 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 first ∠0° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1830" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2033 after 11 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 2 days 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°).
6 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 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 December 2033 at 08:06 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 391 601 km (243 330 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 272 km (225 105 mi).
6 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 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 December 2033 at 23:03 in ♈ Aries.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 06:12 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.438°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.469° in its northern standstill point on 7 December 2033 at 04:42 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 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.
