Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 5 January 2032 at 22:04.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1894" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2032 after 19 days on 27 January 2032 at 12:52.
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.
The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 395 of Meeus index or 1348 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2032. It is 43 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 43 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 26 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠334.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠351.6°.
7 days after point of apogee on 31 December 2031 at 13:16 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 13 January 2032 at 07:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 378 439 km (235 151 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 088 km (221 884 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♏ Scorpio at 08:58 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 20 January 2032 at 20:00 in ♉ Taurus.
At 08:58 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
12 days since the previous standstill on 27 December 2031 at 07:41 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.355°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.298° at the point of next southern standstill on 10 January 2032 at 16:49 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 4 days on 12 January 2032 at 20:07 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
