Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 12 January 2032 at 20:07.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2032 after 14 days on 27 January 2032 at 12:52.
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 396 of Meeus index or 1349 from Brown series.
Length of current 396 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 18 minutes. It is 18 minutes longer than next lunation 397 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 43 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠351.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠6.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:55, this is 12 days after last apogee on 31 December 2031 at 13:16 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 27 January 2032 at 16:13 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 357 088 km (221 884 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 420 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 268 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
5 days after its ascending node on 8 January 2032 at 08:58 in ♏ Scorpio, 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 20 January 2032 at 20:00 in ♉ Taurus.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 10 January 2032 at 16:49 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.298°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.240° in the next northern standstill on 23 January 2032 at 14:33 in ♊ Gemini.
After 14 days on 27 January 2032 at 12:52 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
