Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 17 April 2032 at 15:24.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1790" and ∠1908".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2032 after 3 days on 25 April 2032 at 15:10.
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 399 of Meeus index or 1352 from Brown series.
Length of current 399 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour shorter than next lunation 400 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠44.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠73.2°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 19 April 2032 at 03:02 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 May 2032 at 20:49 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 400 497 km (248 857 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 512 km (229 604 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 11 April 2032 at 11:00 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 April 2032 at 21:52 in ♏ Scorpio.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous North standstill on 14 April 2032 at 13:29 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.650°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.640° in the next southern standstill on 28 April 2032 at 22:45 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 3 days on 25 April 2032 at 15:10 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
