Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 19 September 2032 at 09:30.

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 in ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1910"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1910" and ∠1912".

Harvest Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2032 after 26 days on 18 October 2032 at 18:58.

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 404 / 1357

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 404 of Meeus index or 1357 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.69 days

Length of current 404 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 30 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2032. It is 11 minutes longer than next lunation 405 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 46 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 17 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠189.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠189.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠215.1°. 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

3 days after point of perigee on 18 September 2032 at 14:05 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 October 2032 at 03:03 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 375 236 km

Moon is 375 236 km (233 161 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 951 km (252 246 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 21 September 2032 at 16:10 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 October 2032 at 02:03 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 12 September 2032 at 21:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.181°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.115° in the next northern standstill on 25 September 2032 at 11:10 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 4 October 2032 at 13:26 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
