Crescent ♉ Taurus
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 2% and growing larger. The 1 day young Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 10 April 2032 at 02:39.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1883" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2032 after 14 days on 25 April 2032 at 15:10.
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 399 of Meeus index or 1352 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour shorter 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 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 21 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠44.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠73.2°.
4 days after point of perigee on 7 April 2032 at 06:55 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 19 April 2032 at 03:02 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 380 591 km (236 488 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 547 km (251 374 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♉ Taurus at 11:00 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 25 April 2032 at 21:52 in ♏ Scorpio.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 1 April 2032 at 17:12 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.688°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.650° at the point of next northern standstill on 14 April 2032 at 13:29 in ♊ Gemini.
In 14 days on 25 April 2032 at 15:10 in ♎ Libra 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.
