Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 6 August 2032 at 05:11.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon is entering ♌ Leo

Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1892".

Sturgeon Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2032 after 13 days on 21 August 2032 at 01:47.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 403 / 1356

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 403 of Meeus index or 1356 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.66 days

Length of current 403 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 45 minutes. It is 45 minutes shorter than next lunation 404 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠166.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠166.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠189.3°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 17:16, this is 14 days after last perigee on 23 July 2032 at 18:45 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 21 August 2032 at 03:52 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 406 532 km

This apogee Moon is 406 532 km (252 607 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 124 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 177 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 29 July 2032 at 06:13 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 August 2032 at 19:55 in ♎ Libra.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 1 August 2032 at 21:35 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.514°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.386° in the next southern standstill on 16 August 2032 at 13:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 21 August 2032 at 01:47 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
