Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 10 November 2032 at 11:33.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon is entering ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1936"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1936" and ∠1940".

Beaver Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2032 after 1 day on 17 November 2032 at 06:42.

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 406 / 1359

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 406 of Meeus index or 1359 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.63 days

Length of current 406 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 8 minutes. It is 1 hour and 44 minutes longer than next lunation 407 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 24 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 39 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠248.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠248.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠286.1°. 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

1 day after point of perigee on 13 November 2032 at 15:20 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 November 2032 at 14:16 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 370 169 km

Moon is 370 169 km (230 012 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 371 km (251 264 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♉ Taurus at 12:07 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 29 November 2032 at 16:30 in ♎ Libra.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 6 November 2032 at 09:19 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.070°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.095° in the next northern standstill on 19 November 2032 at 06:10 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 17 November 2032 at 06:42 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
