Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 1% and growing larger. The 1 day young Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 12 January 2032 at 20:07.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2032 after 14 days on 27 January 2032 at 12:52.
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.
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 396 of Meeus index or 1349 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 18 minutes. It is 18 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 43 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠351.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠6.9°.
Moon is at perigee at 07:55. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 31 December 2031 at 13:16 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 27 January 2032 at 16:13 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 357 088 km (221 884 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 420 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 268 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
5 days after ascending node on 8 January 2032 at 08:58 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 20 January 2032 at 20:00 in ♉ Taurus.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 10 January 2032 at 16:49 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.298°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.240° at the point of next northern standstill on 23 January 2032 at 14:33 in ♊ Gemini.
In 14 days on 27 January 2032 at 12:52 in ♌ Leo the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
