Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 21 August 2032 at 01:47.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon is entering ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1919"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1919" and ∠1899".

Sturgeon Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2032 after 24 days on 19 September 2032 at 09:30.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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.

Lunation 403 / 1356

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 21 August 2032 at 03:52 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 September 2032 at 19:58 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 373 518 km

Moon is 373 518 km (232 093 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 561 km (252 625 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♉ Taurus at 09:01 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 8 September 2032 at 21:41 in ♎ Libra.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 16 August 2032 at 13:55 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.386°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.299° in the next northern standstill on 29 August 2032 at 03:57 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 4 September 2032 at 20:57 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
