Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 18 March 2032 at 20:56.
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 passing about ∠6° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1924".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2032 after 2 days on 27 March 2032 at 00:46.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 398 of Meeus index or 1351 from Brown series.
Length of current 398 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 15 minutes. It is 41 minutes shorter than next lunation 399 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 29 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 40 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠23.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠44.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
2 days after point of apogee on 22 March 2032 at 08:27 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 7 April 2032 at 06:55 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 403 924 km (250 987 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 117 km (226 873 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 15 March 2032 at 02:16 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 March 2032 at 15:09 in ♏ Scorpio.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 18 March 2032 at 04:54 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.775°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.688° in the next southern standstill on 1 April 2032 at 17:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 2 days on 27 March 2032 at 00:46 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
